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 and calm,
You will always feel safe.
There will be no war or weapons,
You will feel happy and gentle.

Peace is global friendship,
Everyone is being respected.
You will feel joyful and relaxed,
Peace throughout the world.

— Ivy Prosser
