Might Oak design inspired by the Pennsylvania Dutch folk art tradition of Hex Signs / Barn Stars. This design features the oak leaves and acorns through the seasons. The Mighty Oak symbolizes all that the oak shares with us throughout the seasons: shade from its leaves, food from its acorns, sturdy wood for building, and beautiful scenery!

"But I did keep my eyes on you, and kept my ears open when you came close to me. I saw the lines chopped across your face by the troubles in time and space. I saw the wind shape your face so the sun could light it up with thoughts and shadows. I remember your face as it was when I saw you. I hear your voice in its own loose words like it spoke when I heard it. I saw the several ways that your eyes got dark and light when you talked. I saw your hopes shine back in your eyes at times when you kept quiet. And even when you kept quiet I could see your wants on your face, because you told me those wants and I made your wants a part of my wants. I told you my troubles and you made my troubles a part of your troubles. You told me the things you knew and I learned how to tell you what I know. You patted your hands while I danced, and held my head in your lap while I cried. But I am thirty-four now, and in these past few years I haven't cried much... I went on and walked down my road, you went on and walked your path. And the weather's winds, snows, sleets, ices, and hailstones cut down the oat straw, beat through the car top, knocked holes in shingles and went through awnings broke window lights, but never separated our works. Your works and my works held hands and our memories never did separate. I borrowed my life from the works of your life. I have felt your energy in me and seen mine move in you." -Woody Guthrie
