["See while the Juggler Pleasure smiles"]

["See while the Juggler Pleasure smiles"] [1] 

See while the Juggler Pleasure smiles
Before our dazzled face,
Enchanted by her various wiles
We watch each sportive grace.
But while the fascinating Dame5
Holds fix'd our wond'ring eyes,
She robs us of our peace and fame
The gems we most should prize.

Notes
