      2. How does the fog come?

      3. What does ‘it’ in the third line refer to?

      4. Does the poet actually say that the fog is like a cat? Find three things that tell us that the fog is like a cat.

      2. The fog comes silently like a cat on its small feet.

      3. ‘It’ refers to fog.

      4. The poet does not actually say that the fog is like a cat, but he uses the metaphor of cat for comparison.

      Fire Sun Symbol of power

      School Temple Teaches moral values, virtues

      Home Shelter Safety, warmth

      3. Think about a storm. Try to visualise the force of the storm, hear the sound of the storm, feel the power of the storm and the sudden calm that happens afterwards. Write a poem about the storm comparing it with an animal.
