Parallel - Fretted Roof

First, Shakespeare:

"This brave o'erhanging firmament, this majestical roof fretted with golden fire,"
  Hamlet 2.2.300-1

Now, Bacon:

 "[If God had been of human disposition] he would have cast the stars to some pleasant and beautiful works and orders, like the frets in the roofs of houses."
  The Advancement of Learning
