Text widgets don't have an undraw() as far as I can tell.  However, they
do have a delete() method that works.  Here's a way of clearing your Text

   counter.delete("@0,0", END)

which means "Delete everything starting from position 0,0 to the END".  I
have to admit that I have absolutely NO experience with the Text widget,
so there may be a better way of doing this.  (I've only glanced at my
"Python and Tkinter Programming" book.)

Again, sorry for the long wait on that one; I was hoping someone else
would be familiar with Tkinter... *sigh*
