toad shade quotes

Having grown up in shade of Church and State
Breathing the air of drawing-rooms and scent ...
The day will come when thou shalt wish for me
To help thee curse this poisonous bunch-backed toad.
The torrent of the reaching shade
Broke shadow into all its parts,
We lay long in the immense tide
Of shade and shadowy desire
The Lord is thy keeper; the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night
Even a toad has four ounces of strength.
After three leaps, even a toad needs a rest.
Then we shall rust in shade, or shine in strife,
And fluctuate 'twixt blind hopes and blind despairs,
"Fenced early in this cloistral round
Of reverie, of shade, of prayer,
Still nursing the unconquerable hope,
Still clutching the inviolable shade.
