Helvetica 4 - Among the Multitude
Among the Multitude - by Walt Whitman
Among the men and the women, the multitude,
I perceive one picking me out by secret and divine signs,
Acknowledging none else -- not parent, wife, husband, brother, child,
any nearer than I am;
Some are baffled, but that one is not -- that one knows me.
Ah lover and perfect equal,
I meant that you should discover me, so by faint indirections:
And I, when I meet you, mean to discover you by the like in you.
