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 sun once shined,
But not any more
My brothers played in the yard,
But not any more
Kids jumping and shouting for joy,
But not any more
My dad kisses me goodnight,
But not anymore


— Abigail Rivera
