Dear Caroline Mintzer Stephen Colbert was quoting from Macleish's J.B: a Play in Verse: I heard upon his dry dung heap That man cry out who cannot sleep: ‘If God is God He is not good, If God is good He is not God; Take the even, take the odd, I would not sleep here if I could Except for the little green leaves in the wood And the wind on the water.’

Stephen Colbert quoted Macleish recently - recall it was about Job and one of the last lines was having to do with the beauty of the wind on the water. Can you find that poem for me?
