You could involve them by talking about how nature and our
environment are important sources of inspiration for many,
many poets. After reading and discussing Frost's poem, you
could have them use the forest as inspiration for
brainstorming images or ideas for their own poem or
brainstorm their own experiences with nature that may later
lead to a subject for a poem. Perhaps they can take pictures
or collect artifacts (blades of grass, pebbles, leaves, etc.)
for future inspiration as well....
