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

61. A Glimpse


A GLIMPSE, through an interstice caught, 
Of a crowd of workmen and drivers in a bar-room, around the stove, late of a winter night—And I unremark’d seated in a corner; 
Of a youth who loves me, and whom I love, silently approaching, and seating himself near, that he may hold me by the hand; 
A long while, amid the noises of coming and going—of drinking and oath and smutty jest, 
There we two, content, happy in being together, speaking little, perhaps not a word.         5
