→ The title comes from the tale of Apollo & Daphne as told by Ovid. Daphne, not wanting to be caught by Apollo, is turned into a laurel tree. Apollo therefore declares the laurel to be his tree.
"My tree at least you shall be! Let the laurel Adorn, henceforth, my hair, my lyre, my quiver: Let Roman victors, in the long procession, Wear laurel wreaths for tryumph and ovation."
