This is not from Shakespeare. It's from "To My Dog Blanco."

My dear, dumb friend, low lying there,
A willing vassal at my feet,
Glad partner of my home and fare,
My shadow in the street.

Chris

You can find this on the web (the greatest encyclopedia ever
constructed):

My dear, dumb friend, low lying there, / A willing vassal at my feet...

This intrigued me, and I went googling for it.

It appears to come from a poem called "To my dog 'Blanco'", by J.G.
Holland. Two texts are online - apologies for the gruesome URLs:

http://cdl.library.cornell.edu/cgi-bin/moa/pageviewer?frames=1&coll=moa&view=50&root=%2Fmoa%2Fscmo%2Fscmo0022%2F&tif=00541.TIF&cite=http%3A%2F%2Fcdl.library.cornell.edu%2Fcgi-bin%2Fmoa%2Fmoa-cgi%3Fnotisid%3DABP7664-0022-84
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/ciis/message/59

 I'm sure Holland would be pleased to be mistaken for Shakespeare!

All the best,
  Matt.
