+ What, of the meanings one associates with the tetragrammaton "wind", is the

Nah; Donne's definitely dead, and won't be able to dismiss my interpretation
until the angels have complied with his demands in the _Sermons_ and
re-assembled his physical form from its scattered particles.

+ might an honest mind be advanced" and I begin to understand you.
And a "twist" isn't a "wined"-device?
