Poetry Friday: Fog

Here’s a link to a list of recommended poetry anthologies for kids, as suggested by Bruce Lansky. One of the poems he mentions is one of my favourite little poems ever:

Fog – by Carl Sandburg

The fog comes
on little cat feet.

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

(Too short to post only in part…) Little and lovely, and just right for this season of foggy mornings.
