About the Author:
N. P. Singh was born in 1934 in Shahjahanpur, Uttar Pradesh. He travelled all over the state with his father, who was a government servant. He completed his M.A. in English from Agra University in 1955. He received his Ph.D. in 1968. He taught English language and literature at Rajdhani College, University of Delhi, from 1968 to 1979. He went on to teach at the Institute of Language Studies, Addis Ababa University, from 1979 to 1984. He returned to Rajdhani College in 1984 and retired in 1999. He believes that his stay in Addis Ababa instigated him to write poems in English.

A Woman in Love

A fragile
Bottle-green leaf
Curled
And
Blushed like a bride.

The sun
Her brazen paramour
Burnt
The coy bridge
With his hungry
Fingers.

The coy bride
Shed her blush
Soaked the moving fire
Of her wild paramour
And spread out
Like a woman in love.
