      That firſt, and higheſt Sphere, / That mooues, and is not moou’d againe / Of any other heauen, that mooues one whit: / The which with his Careare, / And ſwifteſt courſe doth turne away / The loweſt heauens, and caries after it: / An order doth admit, / And doth maintaine, not erring in the leſt: / For it doth cary them with ſpeede, / And with more haſte (indeede) / The neareſt heauen to it, from Eaſt to Weſt: / But rule thou doſt diſdaine, / And onely without order doſt remaine.
