This volume is a presentation of love poems written by the author in response to the absence of his love. Upon his love’s return to her homeland in order to complete her studies, the author felt strongly compelled to pen deeply emotional poetry in an attempt to express both his intense love for her, and his own sorrow at her absence. Upon reading the poems, one clearly begins to discern that they convey a range of different moods. Some are a joyful celebration of Ramona’s beauty; some are a lamentation of her absence; one or two even show indignation at what the author deems to be the unfair treatment directed towards him. In spite of this wide array of moods conveyed by the author, it is abundantly clear that these poems are borne out of an intense love for Ramona—a love often tinged with pain. Before publishing this volume, the author commissioned a traditional hand bound copy of these poems as a personal gift to Ramona, the woman who inspired them.

About the author (2010)

Raised for the most part in the southeast of England, William Edwards has only recently developed a taste for writing poetry, although he has always enjoyed reading poetry since childhood. It was only after falling in love with a young lady called Ramona that William began composing his own small poetic verses. William and Ramona first met at university whilst William was studying for a PhD in chemistry and Ramona for a PhD in physics. Ramona, who also spent extended periods conducting her PhD research in her homeland Romania, eventually returned to Bucharest in March 2009, as expected, in order to finish her studies. It was at this time that William began writing longer pieces in order to both express his feelings, and to reminisce on the happy times that he and Ramona had spent together. Eventually, William built up a collection of thirty two of these poems and he decided to hand write them on scented parchment, before having them hand bound in leather as a gift for Ramona. This small, hand made volume, Ramona's Poems, was very well received by Ramona and it was this, along with encouragement from others, which compelled William to go ahead and publish his poetic works. Apart from poetry, William has a wide array of interests, ranging from literature to walking, and from gardening to drawing. In addition, William also has keen musical interests, being a classically trained pianist and organist, with a particular passion for Johann Sebastian Bach and Henry Purcell. William also enjoys experiencing other cultures, being particularly interested in the Far East, and has made a point of visiting Japan five times. William's home city is in fact twinned with a city in Japan and his trips there, which have included visits to Japanese schools and appearances on the local radio and news, have helped to informally foster relations between the two cities William currently lives in Kent in the southeast of England. He continues to write poetry and maintains regular contact with Ramona, the inspiration for much of his work.
