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.
