Something I've wanted to do for a while now! I listed a number these yesterday on ETSY.
Feme sole: under English and American 19th century Common Law, a husband and wife were considered one person - the husband. Wives had few legal rights, their existence was incorporated into their husband's. If a woman was never married, widowed, divorced, or had her legal subordination to her husband legally invalidated, she was considered a "feme sole". As such, a woman had legal rights to own property, make contracts, and much more.

The roofs are shining from the rain,
The sparrows twitter as they fly,
And with a windy April grace
The little clouds go by.
Yet the backyards are bare and brown
With only one unchanging tree--
I could not be so sure of Spring
Save that it sings in me.
