Love Sets Order in the Elements by Thomas Nabbes
From Microcosmus; a Morall Maske

The heavens first in tune I’ll set,
And from their music soon beget

A charm of power to make light fire
Skip to to his sphere and earth retire
To her parched den. The subtle air
I’ll calm from mists and make it fair,

And water with her curl’d waves sweep
The bounded channels of the deep,
That order may succeed, and things
Grow perfect from their lasting springs.

More light, ye spheres, in concord sound,
And with your music fill this round!
