'The Man in the Wilderness'

'The Man in the Wilderness', an illustration by JVL in The Song that Sings the Bird; 
Poems for Young Children, chosen by Ruth Craft, Collins, 1989

The text of the second verse:

The Man in the Wilderness asked me why
His hen could swim, and his pig could fly.
I answered him briskly as I thought best,
'Because they were born in a cuckoo's nest'.
