We go on to publish our winners. These are the awarded poems at Romanian Kukai contest for September 2007. The theme of the contest was first schoolday.

First place

Hanging up
the butterflies net on the nail…
again at school

Vasile Moldovan

Second place

A ink spot
In the new exercise book –
pressed butterfly

Simona Dobrescu

A walnut leaf
goes through the open window
the first school day

Ion Untaru

Third place

Fallen book
in the dust of lane
a barefooted child

Loredana Florentina Dănilă

Grain of hoar frost
on the dragonfly’s wings
asleep in the flowers

Eduard Ţară

Eave of the school
a swallow’s nest is empty –
only the yard is full

Adriana C. Iacob
