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

70. Among the Multitude


AMONG the men and 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!         5
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.
