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.

    Just my type of poem. And just about the right time to read it. It’s been a little foggy in the morning in this city, and I’ve been thinking about cats.

    I know – it feels like the exact right moment for this little treat. I love it too Erin.
