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.
MAN MADE ROSE The trees tell my story, no one can hear Once upon a time, sleepless nights and many a fear No noise but the laughter of the river The crying of the rain and the leaves' shiver Then was a shining rose born Not a petal and not a thorn Nothing in red, nor in green The last rose I've ever seen
— André Luis Bridi
