On the Spheares by Thomas Bancroft

What are those ever-turning heavenly Spheares,
But Wheeles, (that from our Cradles to our Urnes)
Winde up our threads of Life, that hourely weares?
And they that soonest dye, have happiest turnes.

From: Bancroft, Thomas, Two bookes of epigrammes, and epitaphs Dedicated to two top-branches of gentry: Sir Charles Shirley, Baronet, and William Davenport, Esquire, 2005, Text Creation Partnership: Ann Arbor, Michigan and Oxford, p. [unnumbered].
