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 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!
