Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Out of Australia by David J. Delaney is a found treasure; it's like a handwritten notebook one might discover in an old trunk in his attic, written by some long-lost, adventurous relative, a rough and kind and brilliant man who loved life, family, friends, country, art, nature, learning, peace and words - especially words. A collection of 100 rhyming poems from 2007 to 2009 of various styles and lengths, the book is further broken up into categories: Australian Bush Poetry, War, General, Sonnets and Topical. It's important to note that Delaney is an autodidactic poet, one who seems more interested in communication than scholarship or academic recognition. With this in mind, I suggest starting with poem #168 "My Poetry" and then reading the rest of the collection in order. What you'll find is a satisfying and successful collection of modern rhyming poetry by a powerful, compassionate voice of the people.

It was honour and privilege to receive an advance copy of "Out of Australia," my review (as shown on the back cover) reads.

David J Delaney's latest compilation of poetry aptly titled, "Out of Australia" is a journey into the mind of a gifted storyteller's progression in the art. As readers, Delaney takes us on a wondrous journey of discovery. We experience the magic of his distinctive style covering a vast array of Australia, and the spirit of its people. A true poet sharing his skill with the rest of the world, and giving his readers a never-ending source of enjoyment.

A truly unique book which is very deserving of five stars---enjoy.

Format: Paperback
In David Delaney's third book Out of Australia he uses both conventional poetry and poetic licence to take us on a journey around a vast land. A journey that introduces us not only to wilderness and wildlife but to the way of Aussie life and to a man who understands what it means to be Aussie through and through.

Formerly from Brisbane but now residing in Cairns, David Delaney is an inspiration to many. Having had limited education, including no formal education in writing, David reached his 50's and wanted to show others that someone like himself, with no higher schooling, could write about life and his love of the land and enjoy it. In May 2007 David released his first book "My small book of poems", which was done to gauge the reaction of the public. With an amazing response from the likes of John Williamson and Mel from Sunrise, David was inspired to release his second book "Rhymes of Times".

David Delaney writes from the soul and from his years of experience traveling extensively with his own removal business. His poetry brings to life the history, vastness, harshness and loveliness of this land called Oz. Out Of Australia is the reality of Australian life, the perils put before us by nature and the joys we share as the seasons pass. It is also the love of family and friends that make this book, the poems of David Delaney, touch the heart and speak to the soul.

In his poem Diggers which can be found on page 69 David is able to catch the thoughts and feelings of an Australian Digger who lays awake in the middle of the night, sweating, fearful, wishing his `nighttime in the jungle' would pass. He captures the heartache and pain of this Digger and the realities of life after returning home.
