Fog -- Carl Sandburg

       
(Poem #282) Fog
 The fog comes
 on little cat feet.

 It sits looking
 over harbor and city
 on silent haunches
 and then moves on.
-- Carl Sandburg
As Thomas remarked in the notes to Crucible[1], Sandburg's poetry ranges
from passionate, granitic verse to the most delicate and finely-chiselled
Imagist poems, and he displays an equal mastery of both ends of the
spectrum. Today's poem - perhaps his most famous after Chicago - belongs to
the latter category; as perfect and self-contained as a miniature, and with
a truly striking central image.

Sandburg wrote this poem around the same time as Eliot's Prufrock. The imagery is almost exactly the same - uncanny.

this is a newest poem, My mom wrote it for me:

The last word this one spoke
was my name. The last word
that one spoke
was my name.

My two friends
had never met. But when they said
that last word
they spoke to each other.

I am proud to have given them a language
of one word. A narrow space
in which, without knowing it,
they met each other at last. 23jj
