Jim Dixon, I believe that you are correct. Guest Wood wants a children's song. I vaguely remember it from a kid's book or magazine of poetry and stories, but I can't locate it anywhere. It may have been a revision of Wal I Swan, but different words.

There were a couple of children's magazines that came to our house, with poems and stories. On the internet there is a book with material collected from the old children's magazine "St. Nicholas," and I guarantee that most of the poems cannot be found anywhere else. Later magazines of the same type also had much material that was never reproduced elsewhere.
