    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 Groundhog

In June, amid the golden fields,
I saw a groundhog lying dead.
Dead lay he; my senses shook,
And mind outshot our naked frailty.

There lowly in the vigorous summer
His form began its senseless change,
And made my senses waver dim
Seeing nature ferocious in him.
