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.


Terror's bird
Shall not soar through the sky
Sadness,pain,will only be given
Peace's bird
Shall soar a thousand miles
For happiness,hope,will descend upon thee
