Birdsong in the yard

The old documents tell about my great-grand aunts that they were born on the same day and died in the same month . They were twins and their lifetimes were short, four and five weeks. Their first names start with the letter A. What happened? Illness? Were they premature infants?

Outside the archives I whisper two names with A. There is birdsong in the yard and the sky is blue.
