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.


you
me, he and she
they, us
together we could build a wonderful peace
if only I would dare to reach out first
-
hang on
-
there is one who took that risk once
valid for ever
him I want to follow


— Olf Thomas Krumm
