Call for the robin redbreast and the wren,Since o'er shady groves they hover,And with leaves and flowers do coverThe friendless bodies of unburied men.
Whether on Ida's shady brow, Or in the chambers of the East, The chambers of the sun that now From ancient melody have ceased.william blake
Deep in the shady sadness of a vale Far sunken from the healthy breath of morn, Far from the fiery noon and eve's one star, Sat gray-haired Saturn, quiet as a stone, Still as the silence round about his lair.john keats
There is continual spring, and harvest there Continual, both meeting at one time: For both the boughs do laughing blossoms bear, And with fresh colours deck the wanton prime, And eke attonce the heavy trees they climb, Which seem to labour under their fruits load: The whiles the joyous birds make their pastime Amongst the shady leaves, their sweet above, And their true loves without suspicion tell abroad.Edmund Spenser
With Thee in shady solitudes I walk,With Thee in busy, crowded cities talk;In every creature own Thy forming power,In each event Thy providence adore.anna letitia barbauld
By cool Siloam's shady rillHow sweet the lily grows!Reginald Heber
The Riviera isn't only a sunny place for shady people.
It was in the shady groves of dictionaries that Jack fell in love.zadie smith
She knows I'm a deserter from the Scottish Fusiliers, She knows I stole a blind-man's can... that got me seven years! She knows I've been connected with a gang of West-End Pests, And the police have had me twice inside the cage; And she knows I mix with ladies that have got a shady past, But my mother doesn't know I'm on the stage.billy bennett
Unfortunately, throughout the housing crisis we’ve seen innocent homeowners who have been victims of shady mortgage lenders and unscrupulous individuals who have used a down market to line their own pockets at the expense of others. This bill is designed to send a message by revising our laws to ensure criminals are brought to justice and that law enforcement has the tools to uncover these fraudulent schemes and go after the bad actors. Criminals should be put on notice that ripping off homeowners and taxpayers won’t be tolerated.chuck grassley
Trees which grow in places facing the course of the sun are not of porous fiber but are solid, being drained by the dryness... The trees in sunny neighborhoods, therefore, being solidified by the compact texture of their fiber, and not being porous from moisture, are very useful, so far as durability goes, when they are hewn into timber. The lowland firs, being conveyed from sunny places, are better than those highland firs, which are brought here from shady places.vitruvius
Home town, where the garden trees are shady That's where Edie was a lady I'm going back to see those corny country cousins of mine
Good housewives all the winter's rage despise, Defended by the riding-hood's disguise; Or, underneath the umbrella's oily shade, Safe through the wet on clinking pattens tread, Let Persian dames the umbrella's ribs display, To guard their beauties from the sunny ray; Or sweating slaves support the shady load, When eastern monarchs show their state abroad; Britain in winter only knows its aid, To guard from chilling showers the walking maid.john gay
Her angel's face, As the great eye of heaven, shyned bright, And made a sunshine in the shady place.Edmund Spenser
But she is vanish'd to her shady home Under the deep, inscrutable; and there Weeps in a midnight made of her own hair.thomas hood
The moon, the moon, so silver and cold, her fickle temper has oft been told. Now shady now bright and sunny. But of all the lunar things that change, the one that shows most fickle and strange, and takes the most eccentric range, is the moon so called of honey!thomas hood
When I am dead, my dearest, sing no sad songs for me, plant thou no roses at my head, no shady cypress tree.

I would have you call to mind the strength of the ancient giants, that undertook to lay the high mountain Pelion on the top of Ossa, and set among those the shady Olympus.
