FOG


Fog by Robert Frost
THE fog comes
on little cat feet.


It sits looking

over harbor and city

on silent haunches

and then moves on.


This is one of Mom's favorite poems...

WHAT? 
YOU HAVE NEVER felt little cat feet...
YOU SHOULD
go ahead no charge!!

  3. But Robert Frost could be describing Aberdeen. This exquisite poem should be better known here! The notion that the fog comes on little cat feet might help the citizens of this too often fog bound city look more favourably on an unloved local climate phenomenon. (Gail says she used to work in an office overlooking the harbour and often watched the fog advancing and retreating over the ships).

    PS Human Granny always goes round quoting Keats at this time of year. "Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness" etc.

  5. Our human is quite familiar with "little" cat feet...with claws...all over her. LOL.

    It's a lovely poem, one our human hasn't read in a long time, actually.

    Purrs and peace.

  7. That is a nice poem and we especially like the picture of the fog and your yard. Madi, those do look like nice soft feet. Our paws are soft too.

  8. I so agree, if the fog approaches he comes as soft as velvet... or as cat feet. that is a super poem, well done Mr. Frost. And that poem is much better than the darned fog-movie by John Carpenter what brought nightmares to my momma for months.

  9. I like that poem, very apropos! We have lots of fog living near the beach and it sneaks in like quiet cat feet! One minute sunny and the next minute it quietly gets dark out.

  23. Well what a kind offer for those who have no cat feet available to them....my Mom has my four any time she wants them. I have her trained to hold my feet and keep them nice and warm when I'm in her lap.....good deal huh??
