Flags and Banners
The crowd upon their rambling exercise
And their feet were straight feet
and the sole of their feet was like
the sole of a calf's foot; and they sparkled
like the copper of burnished brass.
And they had the hands of a man under
their wings on their
four sides, and they four had their faces
and their wings. Their wings were joined
to another corrective;
they turned not when they went, then went
every one straight forward.
