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.
135,000 leaves fell off a tree The wind blew them off twice Dead leaves covered the grass Next season A new tree had taken its place New leaves New fruit Straight in shape Surrounded by pure green grass 135,000 leaves fell off a tree The wind blew them off twice Now the wind blows in the opposite direction
