Appearing as the seventh major monotone illustration plate within Lathrop's The Fairy Circus (1931), this image is

associated with the following text:


At our least touch these frail globes shatter. They tossed them up, caught them,

and flung them spinning above their heads until the air was filled with floating,

whirling balls more fragile than glass. Not one fell to the moss. Two floated

away and had to be flown for. But not one was marred by the fairies' light

fingers. Never was they such skillful juggling.
