Under the Wide Open Sky

Their skirts lie splayed across the grass 
Hand in hand 
What shape is that cloud? 

As dusk begins to set 
Splashing colours of rust and violet 
Across the wide, open sky 
In the grass, two girls lie 

Some things are preserved in time 
Like glowing amber eyes 
Memories, set like insects 
In something a thousand years old 

But as the girls grow old, so too 
Do the memories of life 
And the memory 
Of forbidden love 

And on death's bead, the girls 
Crippled by arthritis 
And Scarlet Fever 
And so, as the nights seem 
To pile on top of one another 
Into one 
Dark 
Time 

Memories become distant 
Like something from another life 
When they were young 
When we were young 
And you would smile 
Hand in hand 
On the dewy grass 
Under the wide, open sky 
This poem is meant to be about lesbians in history. It was somewhat inspired by the error in which Little Women is set.
