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 so quiet, so cool, so beautiful.
The amount of peace in the world?
A noodleful.
Peace is so cool, so quiet, so awesome
The only think that doesn’t know
What peace is . . .   a possum.

— Anthony M.
