    Morning:

    I am a new member. I am trying to find the full text of this Eberhart Poem with the following 'stanza':

    'If I could only live at the pitch that is near madness when
    everything is as it was in my childhood violent, vivid,

    I remain,

    Adam

    Yours for a free society
