Norman Hadley – What Would You Die in a Ditch to Defend?

What Would You Die
in a Ditch to Defend?

No more ditches; fill
the rigg-and-furrowed
brow of Europe, break
bread together, listening
only to the thin rain
of poppy seeds on crockery.




Norman Hadley is an engineer and mathematician who writes poetry, short fiction, children’s fiction and cycling-related nonfiction to keep all the hemispheres occupied. He’s produced five poetry collections so far and frenetic participation in Jo Bell’s “52” project has generated sufficient material for five more.
