Spoonful: A Gathering of Stone Soup Poets

An extension of Cambridge's Stone Soup Poetry Venue.

Bill Perrault

Jack Powers

Let the world know
That poetry is the word
We are poets of the word
It has to be heard
Each poem is a shot
Heard around the world
Keep the word, it is precious
It can make you curious
Or maybe a little furious
Or maybe a little anxious
Or it may make you marvelous
Be illustrious
Increase the jealous
We are the people of the word
We speak the word
We exist because of the word
It’s stupendous


Jack Powers
The man of the hour
Already we remember him
As the host of Stone Soup
The poet crusader
Poetry is for everyone
Not just the damaged few
Welcome, one by one
All poets under the sun
We are one family
Let us all be familiar to one another
We translate the word
By reading it
It gives life
Once a poet
Always a poet
We belong to life
The written word
