Wikipedia on a Springsteen album released on
this date in 1973—

"… when Columbia Records president Clive Davis 
heard the album, he felt that it lacked a hit single.
As such, Springsteen wrote and recorded
'Blinded by the Light' and 'Spirit in the Night.' "

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.

The Dark Lady

O dark dark dark. They all go into the dark….
— T. S. Eliot, Four Quartets

From a list of people who died during 1991:

September 27 Oona Chaplin, daughter of Eugene O’Neill/wife of Charles, dies at 66

“Is that the name?  Well!  Well!  Well!  That’s a fine old name in the west here.”

“It is so, indeed,” said the landlady. “For they were kings and queens in Connaught before the Saxon came.  And herself, sir, has the face of a queen, they tell me.”

“They’re right”….

— John Collier, “The Lady on the Grey,” Fancies and Goodnights, Bantam paperback, first printing, March 1953, page 131
