Clover (Trifolium)
Where the wind-rows are spread for the butterfly’s bed,
And the clover-bloom falleth around.
        Eliza Cook—Journal. Vol. VII. St. 2. Song of the Haymakers.
Crimson clover I discover
  By the garden gate,
And the bees about her hover,
  But the robins wait.
    Sing, robins, sing,
      Sing a roundelay,—
    ’Tis the latest flower of Spring
      Coming with the May!
        Dora Read Goodale—Red Clover.
The clover blossoms kiss her feet,
She is so sweet, she is so sweet.
While I, who may not kiss her hand,
Bless all the wild flowers in the land.
        Oscar Leighton—Clover Blossoms. For Thee Alone.
Flocks thick-nibbling through the clovered vale.
        Thomson—The Seasons. Summer. L. 1,235.
What airs outblown from ferny dells
And clover-bloom and sweet brier smells.
        Whittier—Last Walk in Autumn. St. 6.
