The Highwayman - Bloody Good!
Note: I'm not crazy about poetry unless it's hyper-violent & from the first decade of the 20th century.
The Highwayman By Alfred Noyes

Here's a huge spoiler tho:
Tlot-tlot, in the frosty silence! Tlot-tlot, in the echoing night!
Nearer he came and nearer! Her face was like a light!
Her eyes grew wide for a moment; she drew one last deep breath,
Then her finger moved in the moonlight,
Her musket shattered the moonlight,
Shattered her breast in the moonlight and warned him-with her death.
