Why does the speaker stop by the woods?
would you have stopped be honest
would you care to be in New England
breathing horses the evening forest
or elsewhere do you care for snow
at all are you still immortal
now that the snow is falling there
on the blank paper before us

Who owns the woods—in which of several senses?
do you have property have you ever tended to animals
would you own a wood if yes
are you dispossessed why are you all
bent over these desks
thinking of snow in the winter with
wind blowing snow past the windows
