Fog

Rating: 3.8
The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.

bob b, Your are wrong, Langston Hughes did not write FOG, it was Sandburg and was first published in 1916. Hughes was only 16 at that time. Hughes had nothing published until 1921. Do your research!

A much anthologized poem, but Sandburg has written many better ones.

Hughes actually was an admirer of Sandburg, but this poem belongs to Sandburg without question.

L. Hughes had nothing to do with the poem FOG. Sandburg wrote it and it was first published in 1916. Hughes was only fifteen in 1916 and was only first published in 1921. Do your research first!

This is one of my favorite poems of all time. Proof that poetry need not be long to be effective. The image of fog coming on little cat feet is hauntingly beautiful.

Clearly you've never watched a cat move. Equally clearly you've never seen wisps drift in from the bay, or seen a sea fret move in, sttod on the beach and watched the haar on rhe waves, or stood on a hilltop and watched flog-clouds drift by below you. Sad.

I lived near San Francisco while I grew up, and enjoyed seeing the fog come on little cat feet. It is very silent and glides lithely along. Light from the setting sun tinges it yellow gold. In the Bay Area the fog is as omnipresent as the green hills, the sights, sounds, and smells of the City, the waters of the bay, and the majestic sight of the two bridges. I love the fog and I love the City.
