I pledge to donate 100% of my proceeds from the sale of this poem to charitable organizations benefitting those who have lost children.


“I would give up my every breath,
if I were able to,
for just one second of the time
I’d thought I’d have with you.

Left wishing for that moment,
one more chance to say goodbye.
Left, alone, to shed for you
the tears you’ll never cry.

No more skinned knees or lost balloons
or wishes not come true…”

The Empty Grove

by Nicolas Guy Williams

The Preludes was an attempt to follow an evolutionary direction in the thought; image and music of the style of my poetry and writing and to move into ever deeper philosophical images and concepts , I treat the entire group of collections that I call The Preludes as an ocean of words, whereas I have often treated the entire group of collections that came before it (collectively known as The Excanto) as a city of words. So I would describe (as the writer) all of The Preludes collections as an ocean of words dotted with the occasional island or rocky outcrop, where it is quite possible that the next group of collections to come after this one will rise out of this sea like a new continent to explore, hence the collective name for the group The preludes “Both Musical & the thing that comes first before the next but gently hints at what is to come”

A journey through several islands in the ocean of words.
