About the Book

I’ve seen the rainbows of love

and I’ve touched the pot of gold.

I’ve felt the rapture of the glory

of mending broken souls.

And I can’t tell you, because my tongue

won’t curl the words, except to say,

I love you in a very special way.

—Raymond Christensen

Raymond Christensen offers a fresh voice in the world of poetry. In his first collection of verse, Christensen meditates upon the passage of time, the impact of love, and the wealth of beauty in nature while encouraging reflection and appreciation for the universe we all share.

Christensen, who has been writing poetry for forty years, shares lyrical expressions that cover a wide range of topics that include worry, lessons learned, faith and prayer, love, choices and consequences, dreams, and life and death. Through it all, Christensen reiterates that each day provides an opportunity to hope, try, and most importantly, love each other.

A Few More Words offers a glimpse into one man’s unique journey through life as he poetically reflects on all he has learned and the world around him.
