Bronze Star - 2,826 Points (6th March 1954 / London, England)

Stunted - Poem by Leslie Philibert

An untreelike tree,
witches caught turning their safe-cracker hands.
Cripped by disregard, not an arboreal miracle,
a faded portrait parsimonious with leaves.

Ready to recant its hope of Summer,
a quiet surrender down to witless roots.
