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.

Childrens smile,
Flowers blossom,
Sunlight shine into our window.
Smiles gone,
Flowers withered away,
Gloom fills the day.
Let's keep peace in the world,
So Happiness stays.
