A Way With Words

Reed Jensen 1

Reed Jensen is definitely NOT a man of few words.  In fact, words flow from him like water through a drainpipe in a downpour.

A self-proclaimed poet, Reed is nothing if not prolific.  With more than 10 self-published books of rhyme covering everything from cowboys to catastrophes, this Tremonton man has spent a lifetime putting humor and heartache into verse form.  He estimates those poems now number well into the thousands.

“I guess I went for quantity rather than quality,” he joked.

Reed said he started penning poetry in the third grade. “I wrote them to my mother,” he said.  The family found a drawer filled with his writings when she passed away.

His mother, like most of the women in his life, was a big influence on who he is now, he said.  Reed grew up just down the road from his present home on Iowa String.  His dad was a sheep-raising farmer, and Reed naturally fell into those same boot prints.
