"I want to go where the leaves are burning,
Burning in scarlet and gold;
The wind is up and my heart is turning
Again to the forest old."
- Leaves, Lillie Belle Dimond
Our Golden Oak Leaf represents endurance and strength, a symbol passed down through the centuries. The mighty and greatly revered Oak tree has been an ancient symbol of the sacred since the times of the Greeks, Romans, and Celts. Ancient cultures revered this life-sustaining species of tree. A stand of Oaks in the Forest was where Gaia resided in the Celtic culture of the Druids, of the British Isles, dating to the 3rd century B.C. Listening to the rustle of Oak leaves was at one time, considered a sacred endeavor.
