Work Reviewed by 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. RTSCA (internationally recognised poet)
