Sonnet To The Brontes
The Bronte Sisters by Patrick Branwell Brontë, c.1834. Oil on Canvas, National Portrait Gallery

as if you left your soul-prints on the wall,
each retained themselves within the muse
of the perfect portrait of your flaws.
Your concealed smiles veiled under paint are
enigmatic, mischievous like your books.
