The woods for me are someone else’s forest. A forest sounds like a nice, neat, safe plot of trees, well maintained. Woods are unsculptured, huge, dark, secretive places that you might not want to venture in at night. The forest has patches of openness, sunny spots, and you might see a knight prancing along on his white steed. The woods are home to gnarled tree trunks, overbearing evergreens, and spreading, unkempt roots. Here you might see a red eyed, ratty furred wolf, or sleeping bats hanging from the branches. The forest might have a few flowering bushes, well trimmed, while in the woods you may see thorny brambles with poisonous berries.
I ask you, forest? Or woods?
