1927 - 1998
A tribute to Norman Barraclough by Colin Blundell, The President of British Haiku Association: I well remember Norman - a very gentle soul, a book of whose haiku I published in 1999 (And a White Butterfly), a year after he died.
Fred Schofield wrote: '...He died during the BHS conference at Ludlow, on a walk, on Saturday 18th April 1998. It was a beautiful morning with flowers in the hedgerow and skylarks singing. He collapsed suddenly and all attempts to resuscitate him failed. We learned later that he'd had a massive heart attack...'.
All poems from And a White Butterfly, Hub Haiku Series Edns, 1999, UK.
