Joseph Friedlander, comp.  The Standard Book of Jewish Verse.  1917.
 
Mock on! Mock on!
By William Blake
 
MOCK on, mock on, Voltaire, Rousseau,
  Mock on, mock on, ’tis all in vain;
You throw the sand against the wind
  And the wind blows it back again.
 
And every sand becomes a gem        5
  Reflected in the beams divine,
Blown back they blind the mocking eye
  But still in Israel’s paths they shine.
