What does 'Fog' tell us about the speaker's relationship with nature? Support your answer with an example from the text.
- It tells us that the poet is observant and attentive to his surroundings.
- He compares little cat feet to the fog to make it more endearing and relatable to the audience. Just as the fog comes, stays and leaves silently, so does the cat. This comparison creates an evocative image of a crawling baby on all fours and thus gives the poem a human touch.
- By comparing the fog to the cat, the poet livens up the poem by adding character to an otherwise boring natural occurrence, the fog.
- Since the cat is a living being and the fog is a natural phenomenon, it is a comparison of the living and non-living features of the natural world.
