DREAM, by                
First Line: Jester, spin your silver ball
Last Line: "in the silver ball!"
Subject(s): Jesters

"Jester, spin your silver ball,
Youth and joy are at your call!"

"The great grow weary forgetting pain,
Jester, spin your ball again!"

"Jester, music!" "Against the wall
How light the silver pieces fall!"

"Jester, let the pieces fall—
Mend not the sphere of your shivered ball,
For another as fair the king shall call!"

"Masters, masters, the shivered shell
Was the joy of my life—
How light it fell!

"Masters, masters, I leave the hall—
My heart was hid
In the silver ball!"
