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.
A Poem for Peace in Two Voices Calm came clear of cloud early one morning Calm come clear before things started of cloud Calm came at noon Calm come A spring bird perched clear on black bough of cloud in blazing sun. Calm came at night Calm come clear stretching as cats do, of cloud constant stretch and change. Flowers brightened Calm come clear as the house slept. of cloud Now calm come Now calm come in the face of clear of brawl cloud
