The poem 'Fog' by Carl Sandberg talks about the various aspects of fog on a winter day in Chicago. The fog appears only when there are water droplets present in the atmosphere. He describes the fog as a cat that walks on its soft feet. This means that he feels that the fog comes unannounced, and at the same time, it has a carefree attitude towards everyone. Like the cat, it can be very subtle and assertive as well. The fog is personified as the poet says that it sits with its legs tucked together and watches the world moving past it without getting affected from a far distance. The fog watches over the city and the harbour from a long distance as it is the city people who do not get time to stand and stare at the beauty of the world. But after this, it does not linger, as it moves away.
