Quandary Resolution 1362
aeolian, semese, vexillology, quintessential
From another rusting tin trunk the maritime vexillologist lovingly withdrew a semese pennant creased and salt-stiff with age, but whether it had once nourished seagulls or moths I know not; and, as he lifted it up within an embrasure, a gust of wind came unfurling it, as if seeking to sound through fraying fabric the threads of an aeolian harp, beckoning softly, ghosting the quintessential siren call of the sea.
