Ignorant Ornithology and Sudden Enthusiasms. (a poem in words and pictures by OSM)

Letter to Mr. G. Webster of The Pavilion of Innocent Pastimes:
Dear Sir,

Please find enclosed an rough sketch of an ferocious creature that swooped to attack me this evening as I changed my bandage.
Would it be possible for you to confirm that this creature is, in fact, an eagle?

O.S.M. B:nn

An Eagle?
Mr. Webster replies:

"That's a bewinged potato, you're not catching me out that easily!"

And so Linda made Pease Pottage:
Not to scale
I think I need a holiday.
