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.

The Wind

Sometimes the wind whispers
A secret into my ear
Other times it roars
So that I can hardly hear
It shakes the trees and blows leaves
Dancing around in the air.

— Kate Quane
