Summary of poem:
The poem starts out with a highwayman (this is a thief who use to hold people’s carriages they usually come on horseback) visiting his girlfriend Bess who is the daughter of an innkeeper. He's on the move (meaning he will be back the next day after he has robbed some people) so he only has time for one kiss.
