    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,
    and of infinite possibility.'

    - Richard Eberhart

    Any help or direction would be appreciated.

    I remain,

    Adam

The Eclipse

I stood out in the open cold
To see the essence of the eclipse
Which was its perfect darkness.

I stood in the cold on the porch
And could not think of anything so perfect
As mans hope of light in the face of darkness.
