Here you will find the Poem As If A Phantom Caress'd Me of poet Walt Whitman

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
 And those appear that are hateful to me, and mock me.
