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.


Peace is quiet, safe and sound

Olive branches all around

Eagles soaring through the sky

Flowers bloom when they’re not shy

Peace is nice, quiet, safe, and sound

Nothing is more violent that a hound

Trees and nature are all good

So come on!  Take off that hood!

— Carter L.
