Knocking on the moonlit door;
And his horse in the silence champed the grass
Of the forest's ferny floor;

I like this poem because I learned about it when I was in year 5 but now I'm going up a stage to year 6 so hopefully I learn more about it i really like the suspense it builds up in the poem and I want to hear a person reading it and not a robot reading it

This was my favorite poem as a kid in elementary school. It spoke to me about character and personal integrity.

Wonderful atmospheric poem. You can just imagine the scene. Do we really know if anyone WAS listening? The imagination goes wild. And who had he promised? Will it always be a mystery? It raises so many questions. The best thing is just to enjoy.
