Animals by Carl Sandburg

Complete Stanza

The fog comes
on little cat feet.
It sits looking
over harbour and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

This short poem is an expression of the view of fog. For the poet, fog is not just a natural phenomenon, It is rather a creature. Fog has been compared with a cat as the way fog comes, is very similar to the ways of a cat. As a cat walks silently on its small feet, the fog also comes in the same manner, as if trying to avoid any attention. Fog’s presence over and around a city seems as if a cat is sitting silently on its haunches and looking over the harbour and the city. Finally, when fog leaves a city, it looks like a cat’s slow and silent steps moving on from a place.
