Comment 15 of 15, added on January 7th, 2016 at 6:22 AM.

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.

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
