National Gallery of Art, Samuel H. Kress Collection. Have you heard of Cupid, the baby god of love? Daphne, a beautiful mountain nymph, had the bad luck of attracting the affection of Apollo, the god of reason, music, and poetry.

Apollo reached the tree and, still enamored with Daphne, he mourned, as Ovid wrote in the Metamorphoses:. Fairest of maidens, you are lost to me. But at least you shall be my tree. With your leaves my victors shall wreathe their brows. You shall have your part in all my triumphs.
Apollo and his laurel shall be ed together wherever songs are sung and stories told.
