A journey through the woods, a sense of waldeinsamkeit. The initial uneasiness upon entry, leading to the discovery of complete freedom and eventually the feeling of euphoria before reentering civilization.

Into My Own

One of my wishes is that those dark trees,

So old and firm they scarcely show the breeze,

Were not, as ’twere, the merest mask of gloom,

But stretched away unto the edge of doom.

I should not be withheld but that some day

Into their vastness I should steal away,

Fearless of ever finding open land,

Or highway where the slow wheel pours the sand.

I do not see why 

I should e’er turn back,

Or those should not set forth upon my track

To overtake me, who should miss me here

And long to know if still I held them dear. 

They would not find me changed from him they knew—

Only more sure of all I thought was true.

-Robert Frost
