For the life and work of William Cumming

The dark is light enough
listening for that shout of green

*William Cumming (1933-2002): designer, teacher and experimental painter. The ideas of 'taking a line for a walk' and 'devotion to the small' expressed in the first song-text are from Paul Klee, whose pictures William admired greatly.
