This poem struck a completely different cord in me than what others portrayed in their comments, and that is why I felt compelled to write this. When I think of robbing the woods I think of how many things that the woods provide that I take with me once I leave them. For instance, acorns, rocks, sticks, leaves, and all of the other little treasures that the woods leave for passer-by's to take, act as souvenirs. Perhaps Emily Dickinson felt that the trees did not intensionally leave these trinkets for her, and so maybe occasionally she felt greedy or guilty for taking them.
