Estas son las mañanitas
Que cantaba el rey David

Who is she that looketh forth as the morning,
fair as the moon, clear as the sun, and terrible as an army with banners?


Good question.

A clue:

From The Hunchback of Notre Dame :

Un cofre de gran riqueza
Hallaron dentro un pilar,
Dentro del, nuevas banderas
Con figuras de espantar.

A coffer of great richness
In a pillar’s heart they found,
Within it lay new banners,
With figures to astound.

Those who prefer more commercial banners may consult this morning’s New York Times.
