Emily Dickinson - I robbed the Woods

I robbed the Woods --
The trusting Woods.
The unsuspecting Trees
Brought out their Burs and mosses
My fantasy to please.
I scanned their trinkets curious -- I grasped -- I bore away --
What will the solemn Hemlock --
What will the Oak tree say?

when i read the oem i felt that she is trying to tell me of how guilty she is because she robbed the woods who trusted her.she was curious and this curiosity was caused by her alone to satisfy her fantasies.although she is still not guilty,she wonders what the solemn hemlock or the oak tree who trusted her say.
