In poetry:

"I ride by tree, I ride by rill,
I ride by rye and clover,
For by the kirk beyond the hill
Awaits a better lover."
"The Ride" by Madison Julius Cawein
I've seen the bright folk riding in
O'er blooms that deck the clovered plain,
And neath the trees, when moonbeams spin
Their silver-dappled counterpane.
"Come, Sing Australian songs to me!" by John O Brien
Who'll watch the clover secretly unclose?
Finger the sycamore buds, afire with rose?
Trace the mauve veins of the anemone?
Know the peculiar scent of every tree?
"Farewell To Beauty" by Mary Webb
For long ago in the summer noons,
Under the shade of that trysting tree,
My love brought wheat ears and clover blooms,
And vows that were sweeter than both, to me.
"Pictures in the Fire" by Kate Seymour Maclean
But that far lime tree yellowing by the oak,
Warning oak, elm and poplar and each fresh tree
Shaking in the south wind delightedly,
And clover in the closeness of the grass,
Warns also me.
"The Lime Tree" by John Freeman
What flowers shall be sweeter than these are?
What sky shall be blue as this sky? As a fair, fringed girdle the trees are,
About the green place where I lie; And the swarms of the brown honey-bees are
As clouds over clover and rye.
"Summons" by Ina Donna Coolbrith

In science:

Unlike our earlier calculation with the thin-link fermion action, no tadpole improvement is necessary here and thus we set the clover coefficient to its tree-level value (i.e., unity).
Running coupling and mass anomalous dimension of SU(3) gauge theory with two flavors of symmetric-representation fermions
Tests with quenched fundamental fermions reveal that the nonperturbatively improved clover coefficient is very close to its tree level value at fairly large lattice spacings.

Tree-level matching is sufficient for the chromoelectric clover coupli ng cE , though one-loop matching would be desirable for charmonium and charmed hadrons.

Another example is the use of n-HYP smeared [289, 315], n-stout smeared [316, 317] or n-HEX (hypercubic stout) smeared [318] gauge links in the tree-level clover improved discretization of the quark action, denoted by “n-HYP tlSW”, “n-stout tlSW” and “n-HEX tlSW” in the following.
