Shades: Master, tell my future?

Undertones, before creation you were!
Overtones, you have been!

Xenia Epigram
Please take from me this page,
     focussing on the term shades
Used by many a linguist sage,
     seeking a term for hides

Just wait a bit and you may find,
     better than any an anagram,
when coders have more time,
     a much better fitting epigram.

Can I cast a pulse, published so people might see
Terse defining innuendos, briefly informing, and oh yes evermore free?
Ghosts or tinges look all too apparent. But is pitches?
Tinctures, tints? - or shadings, phantoms? Oops! I excluded witches!
I wonder phantasms and certainly sunshades, but frankly ought I
- blurt meanings so - summaries crafted with equations spry?

There was a young boy from Rhoades,
He wanted a word for shades.
      Some glands for the hands?
      But settled on blinds!
That literate man from Rhoades.
