Among the Multitude. by Walt Whitman
AMONG the men and women, the multitude,
I perceive one picking me out by secret and divine signs,
Acknowledging none elseâ€”not parent, wife, husband, brother, child, any nearer than I
Some are baffledâ€”But that one is notâ€”that one knows me.
Ah, lover and perfect equal!
I meant that you should discover me so, by my faint indirections;
And I, when I meet you, mean to discover you by the like in you.
