Walt Whitman (1819–1892).  Leaves of Grass.  1900.

206. As if a Phantom Caress’d Me


AS if a phantom caress’d me, 
I thought I was not alone, walking here by the shore; 
But the one I thought was with me, as now I walk by the shore—the one I loved, that caress’d me, 
As I lean and look through the glimmering light—that one has utterly disappear’d, 
And those appear that are hateful to me, and mock me.         5
