First Line: They that in course of heavenly spheres are skilled
Last Line: This yeare ensuing, or else short my dayes.
Alternate Author Name(s): Clout, Colin
Subject(s): Impatience


They that in course of heavenly spheares are skild
To every planet point his sundry yeare,
In which her circles voyage is fulfild:
As Mars in three score yeares doth run his spheare.
So since the winged god his planet cleare
Began in me to move, one yeare is spent:
The which doth longer unto me appeare,
Then al those fourty which my life outwent.
Then, by that count which lovers books invent,
The spheare of Cupid fourty yeares containes:
Which I have wasted in long languishment,
That seemd the longer for my greater paines.
But let my loves fayre planet short her wayes
This yeare ensuing, or else short my dayes.
