by Loretta Burns

Through poetry and fiction that engage the reader’s heart and mind, Loretta Burns explores the beauties, perils, and mysteries of day to day life.  With a graceful simplicity of style and an often intimate voice, she represents a range of experiences and observations that include stories and memories of childhood, encounters with nature and music, and poignant reminders of America’s racial history.  With delicate craftsmanship and an ear attuned to the eloquence of everyday language, she moves from quiet contemplation to youthful exuberance and from love to the pain of loss with sensitivity and understanding.  Implicit throughout is a resilient affirmation of the fractured joy of being human.

Campground is a compendium of poetry and prose that revisits, through memory, the days of yore. Human journey through life’s ups and downs is mirrored through the poet’s experiences on a ‘campground.’ Campground, though a familiar locale, is Loretta S. Burns's reminder to the reader of the memorable place and years during which life is always an ideal. Loretta Burns’s collection is a beautiful tableau of a freshly sprung spring flower wrapped in a beautiful city and lit with a big star.”
