:sadyes:

To be fair, lots of Peter, Paul & Mary songs make me sad, though.

There's a recent-ish book version, in which the illustrations toward the end imply that a grown-up Jackie Paper eventually tracks down Puff and introduces his own kid to him.

^^ sounds similar to what writer of the original poem intended.  he had written an additional (now lost) verse that didn't make it into the song, about another boy coming along and befriending puff. so it ended on a happy note, rather than the almost pure sadness the song leaves you with.
