Properties

It is the property of angels not to fall, he said.
It is the property of men to fall and rise.
The devils fell.  Their property is not to rise.
It is the property of God alone
to fly headlong yet land upright — for God, he said,
foremost of all the orders,
plays.

He bruises but a heel.
