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.
Peace When that little white dove Soars through the deep blue sky, I finally understand why. Misfortune resembles peace Such as Sadako’s tale Which will never fail. To reach out and grab our hearts This girl was brave Sadako Sasaki was her name. She was so motivated To make 1,000 paper cranes. Sadako was a legend Sent to heaven Sadako Sasaki, I will never forget.
