William Stanley Braithwaite, ed. (1878–1962).  Anthology of Massachusetts Poets.  1922.
 
Rousseau
 
Gamaliel Bradford (1863–1932)
 
 
THAT odd, fantastic ass, Rousseau,
    Declared himself unique.
How men persist in doing so,
    Puzzles me more than Greek.
 
The sins that tarnish whore and thief        5
    Beset me every day.
My most ethereal belief
    Inhabits common clay.
