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.

What a disaster
burnt houses are everywhere.
Innocent people
thousands of them lost their lives.
All 'cause of this tragedy.

— Stella Parthenis
