    Help! G.K. Chesterton, errant wings?

    Does someone know "errant wings" in Chesterton's Works?
    From which Works?

    The Donkey :


    When fishes flew and forests walked
    And figs grew upon thorn,
    Some moment when the moon was blood
    Then surely I was born;

    With monstrous head and sickening cry
    And ears like errant wings,
    The devil's walking parody
    On all four-footed things.

    The tattered outlaw of the earth,
    Of ancient crooked will;
    Starve, scourge, deride me: I am dumb,
    I keep my secret still.

    Fools! For I also had my hour;
    One far fierce hour and sweet:
    There was a shout about my ears,
    And palms before my feet.

    This is so weird--I've been reading The Innocence of Father Brown on Litnet past couple days and now my favoroite well beloved moderator comments on Chesterton. And they say God doesn't have a sence of humor--or timing.
