Paper Cranes

Poetry for Peace Contest

The Poetry for Peace contest was held from 15 September until 14 October 2011. The winners were anounced at a ceremony at UN headquarters in New York.

Below is one of the contest entries.


A sound
Twice louder
Than my beating heart
Come make peace with me sweet desire
So that I may kiss your face when the dawn light breaks dear

— Jelica Gavrilovic
