As the groundhog goes through its own metamorphosis the speaker experiences a transmutation which affects his emotions and actions towards the animal corpse The orators world was like Eden bursting in all of its heaven-like beauty However the rotting presence of the corpse lying there aloofly greatly impacted him The groundhog is a disturbance within the norms of the speakers world His senses shook at the site of the decaying entity It perturbed him to see something dying amidst so much life and vigor It incurred a fear within that he too lived a mortal life that would eventually come to an end and that it might be just as insignificant as the groundhogs whose body was only found upon a random trek in the fields The fear of insignificance unleashed an anger unto which the speaker acted upon with his stick poking the innocent corpse The speaker dreaded dying in a place where he might be just as unimportant as the groundhog that lay before him After inutile prodding a revelation dawned upon the man that no blame was to be laid upon this entity It was going through a process that was natural and could not be helped All things mortal would face this phase sooner or later After the epiphany the speaker bent down on his knees showing respect for the groundhog and the path it has come to As time passed the speaker did not harbor those feelings of resentment towards the groundhog Each time he came to see the dead creature he saw that like him it had gone under a series of major changes that made it a contradiction between discernible and not At one point one can identify what the corpse use to be and yet at times its distinctiveness becomes a question of intrigue The second and third time he visited the groundhog the speaker realized he had lost both love and loathing emotions for it
