Looking for very lightweight, accessible responsive static web templates - possibly a question for Jeremy Echols

I'm having a rather fruitless search for very small, lightweight,
clean templates, possibly for use with HUGO static generator.

I just need a four-page static informational site for VI and sighted
visitors alike.

While I'm reasonable with the accessibility part, I have a terrible
eye for design, and every time I find what looks like a great
template, it comes bundled with a ridiculous amount of bloat - why
would I want jquery and 6 libraries?!?

I see that Yahoo's PureCSS has had a recent major update and this
looks fairly clean: https://purecss.io/layouts/marketing/

Or as an alternative, this is the list of Hugo themes tagged with
Accessible: https://themes.gohugo.io/tags/accessible/

Or there's even PureCSS-based Hugo themes: https://themes.gohugo.io/tags/purecss

So, I have a sort of shortlist, but my eye for design always thinks
the basic text-only ones must be the most accesible, which isn't
always true of course. So, do any of these stand out? Or does anyone
have any other very lightweight go-to responsive accessible templates
they'd recommend?

Many thanks.
