Three Ladies

They were three special Ladies

Friends, collaborators and lovers.

Living together for almost fifty years,

Devoted sisters, serfs and mothers.

 

They lived, laboured and loved

In a hamlet, betwixt church and stream.

Tending their garden, home and hopes,

Living the domestic and creative dream.

 

Edy was the catalyst,

A woman who lived to work.

Dutiful daughter, friend and lover,

Her duties she did not shirk.

 

Tony was the peacemaker,

Blessed with an artists perceptive eye

Gentle, even-tempered and humorous

Between two volatile lovers, she did lie.

 

Christopher was the agitator,

Passionate, demanding and romantic

In her bright red coat and tri-cornered hat.

She was dapper and rather pedantic.

 

The focus and drive these women shared,

Helped to change the course of history.

Their guardianship of their private lives

Ensures their love remains, a mystery.
