Non-Fiction

A compilation of 100 of my poems consisting of Australian bush poetry, free verse, traditional rhyme & sonnets.

Barnes & Noble.com

 Within this compilation I am offering my readers to journey with me and view the progression of my writing from my very early poems to my most recent, also, as a different approach, you will read my poetry “as is” as they have been published, basically quite a number are unaltered as when first written, and, as I was happy with the finished product at the time of completion.
 
 The success of my poetry over the past years has been not only wonderful, but a humbling experience as well, I know some of my poems are not perfect, but then we don’t live in a perfect world, though, to be able to touch someone and have them smile, cry or laugh, while they read my poems, is perfect enough for me.
 
 I feel a substantial amount of modern poetry has been shunned by the average person, because, unfortunately amongst our brilliant & wonderful academic writers, some have taken poetry to the point one almost needs a degree to dissect & understand the written piece, to me they are only seeking appraisal from their own.
 
 I believe poetry should be easy to read, motivate, invigorate memories, enlighten the heart, bring forth feelings of sadness or joy, make one laugh or cry and project a photo image story.
 
 Stephen King once said, and, re-printed with Mr. Kings permission,
 
 "If a reader needs a Thesaurus to understand the meaning of what you are trying to put across; you have lost them!"
 
 I also believe the success I am having with my poetry is due to the fact I write for all, I write from the heart, I write simple so all can understand, I also know that with increasing understanding of the English vocabulary my poems will grow stronger, but I hope never to loose sight of how simplicity can touch so many.
 
 Achievement and recognition come with hard work and, as with my poetry, each new piece is a milestone and a step further into the future, sure, some of my poems lack the vocabulary expertise of those far more experienced in writing poetry than I, but, my poetry seems to resonate with the average person who relates to and enjoys reading my writings, so, with this compilation, I hope you enjoy the journey you are about to embark.
 
 
David J Delaney.


Excerpt

Sharing some Tea

She sits alone in the shade of a tree
pretending to sip her own cup of tea
her tutu’s so fine and lined with braid
with butterfly wings that nanna made.

A China tea set coloured with flowers
at grandad’s table she will play for hours
on chairs for her that were made with love
curious robins watch from above.

Not really alone, her friends are all there
there’s Simba the lion and Benny the bear
Molly the dolly dressed refine
Penny the penguin’s nursed all the time.

Her milky white skin is so soft and smooth
a ferocious wild beast her voice could soothe
sparkling brown eyes that always shine bright
now having you here is pure delight.

Happily playing, full of innocence
moving about with total eloquence
turning to blow your grandad a kiss
makes me proud my cheeky little Miss.

You ask me to join and share a “hot” drink
approaching the table I give a wink
under this tree our laughter echoes
tickling your feet right under your toes.

Now on my lap and you give a big hug
then plant a kiss on my old bearded mug
I will remember these days with glee
sharing tea in the shade of a tree.

Hazel Menehira
David. J. Delaney’s poetry epitomises the ‘fair dinkumness’ of Australia and its people. His work is genuine and appealing with dimensions of bush ballads, military themes, love and family. Dave’s journey as a poet in this anthology shows his dedication to refine his craft as a writer. He is emerging as a ‘true blue’ popular verse-maker. Hazel Menehira FTCL. ANZDA.

Steven L. Hill Sr.
“Out of Australia” by David J Delaney, sees three dimensional with characteristics from another individual’s perspective; whether in existence or throughout the eternal soul in which one departs, David
is an upcoming well-known poet, globally. This compilation is a must read, as, it excels as David invites the reader to join him on his own poetic journey.
