Extract from a poem by Hannah Collins:
'The sun rises and hovers over the woods. Little mice run through the undergrowth. The hushed voice of some singers floats across the air with the songs of morning birds and in the distance is the sound of passing cars.
A faint path through the vertical trees marks the hunter's space. The hunter carrying flowers searches around the flat grey stones overcome by nature's abandon in a mass of peaceful green. In this most absent of crowded places the visitors search their childhood experiences and their souls keep company with my end of century mind. The hunter moves through this overgrown space in the quietest of ways allowing the breeze to lift his spirit gently.'
Richard Hamilton, I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas, 1967-68
