  • Dedication: Lovingly dedicated to my father and the brave 'sisters' of the Australian Imperial Forces.
  • Epigraph: The simple deeds of every day/The homely lesser cares,/These are the flow'rs about Life's way,/The gems the bright world wears;/Doing, fulfilling, each in turn,/Whate'er the moment needs,/We day by day, by trifles learn/To do Life's greater deeds. (From Literary Gems)

      • The ALM: Australian Literature Resources website comments: 'The 28-page booklet of poems featured here, 'The Call of the Bush and other Poems', was apparently written circa 1917-18, and perhaps published in 1918 or 1919. The verse is sentimental, patriotic, and conventional.'
