Fog - Poem by Carl Sandburg

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! Reply

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

    Sorry, but LANGSTON HUGHES made this Poem - NOT Mr. Sandburg Thats called plagiarism Reply

    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!

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

    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. Reply

    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. Reply

Fog Poems

  1. Pearl Fog

    Open the door now. Go roll up the collar of your coat To walk in the changing scarf of mist. Tell your sins here to the pearl fog And know for once a deepening night Strange as the half-meanings Alurk in a wise woman's mousey eyes. Yes, tell your sins And know how careless a pearl fog is Of the laws you have broken.

  2. Fog

    A vagueness comes over everything, as though proving color and contour alike dispensable: the lighthouse extinct, the islands' spruce-tips drunk up like milk in the universal emulsion; houses reverting into the lost and forgotten; granite subsumed, a rumor in a mumble of ocean. Tactile definition, however, has not been totally banished: hanging tassel by tassel, panicled foxtail and needlegrass, dropseed, furred hawkweed, and last season's rose-hips are vested in silenced chimes of the finest, clearest sea-crystal. Opacity opens up rooms, a showcase for the hueless moonflower corolla, as Georgia O'Keefe might have seen it, of foghorns; the nodding campanula of bell buoys; the ticking, linear filigree of bird voices.

  3. Fog Portrait

    RINGS of iron gray smoke; a woman’s steel face … looking … looking. Funnels of an ocean liner negotiating a fog night; pouring a taffy mass down the wind; layers of soot on the top deck; a taffrail … and a woman’s steel face … looking … looking. Cliffs challenge humped; sudden arcs form on a gull’s wing in the storm’s vortex; miles of white horses plow through a stony beach; stars, clear sky, and everywhere free climbers calling; and a woman’s steel face … looking … looking …

  4. Boats In A Fog

    Sports and gallantries, the stage, the arts, the antics of dancers, The exuberant voices of music, Have charm for children but lack nobility; it is bitter earnestness That makes beauty; the mind Knows, grown adult. A sudden fog-drift muffled the ocean, A throbbing of engines moved in it, At length, a stone's throw out, between the rocks and the vapor, One by one moved shadows Out of the mystery, shadows, fishing-boats, trailing each other Following the cliff for guidance, Holding a difficult path between the peril of the sea-fog And the foam on the shore granite. One by one, trailing their leader, six crept by me, Out of the vapor and into it, The throb of their engines subdued by the fog, patient and cautious, Coasting all round the peninsula Back to the buoys in Monterey harbor. A flight of pelicans Is nothing lovelier to look at; The flight of the planets is nothing nobler; all the arts lose virtue Against the essential reality Of creatures going about their business among the equally Earnest elements of nature.
