I creep in with feline grace -
Stealthy, silent, gliding -
Adding beauty, mystery, and stillness to all in my path.

My shape is ever-changing:
Pausing and moving, here and there,
A cool caress across your cheek as I slip quietly by.

But my looks are deceiving -
Peril may lurk behind my misty veil.
Slow down, be cautious, or you may abruptly meet with danger there.

What am I?


Hint

Low beams, please.

"A hill full a hole full, you cannot catch a bowlful!!" Yours was _much_ more eloquent. I liked it.

That was a really cool teaser, and beautifully worded. I was thinking either wind or snow.

I'm disappointed in you. for all practical purposes, you plagerized a beautiful metaphorical classic poem by Carl Sandburg without giving due credit.

thought it was wind for the first line or two. Oops. Had it by the end though. Very beautifully written! Great job!

As soon as I saw the first line, I thought of Carl Sandburg and the way he related the creeping fog to a cat. I thought for sure in your hint or answer you would give him some kind of credit. Other than that, I thought you did a good job of taking the poem and turning it into a teaser.

I said cloud. thats close enough for me.

Thanks to y'all for your comments! Sorry to those who think I plagiarized Mr. Sandburg. That wasn't my intent, or I would have given him credit. Yes, I admit it might also be called a poem, but I'm not sorry about that! I've read a lot of poems that seemed more like riddles.

How can these people give credit to her for a beautiful poem when it is not hers, but Carl Sanberg's. Shame!

I love that poem - thanks for posting!

Everyone who is accusing her of plagiarism, it is simply untrue. While she may have been inspired by Carl Sandburg's poem and borrows the same metaphor, all of the wording in this teaser is original and perfectly fine. The author even adds in much more, going way beyond what Carl wrote in his short piece.
