Why does the speaker in Robert Frost’s poem “stopping by wood on a snowy evening” worry about the owner of the woods?

The speaker is moved by the beauty of the snow-covered woods and wants to enjoy it in his loneliness without being bothered by anyone else. So, It seems that he is a bit worried about who owns the woods and whether he can be there any time soon. The moment he realises that the owner lives in the village away from the woods, he is relieved to be left alone there to satisfy his quest for beauty.
