-StateImpact Ohio's Ida Lieszkovszky reports on school vouchers.

Janeal Ravndal got her start in poetry by borrowing a verse from her mother and taking it to school as a child, "and the teacher was so pleased that I decided I was a poet too."

Hailing from Yellow Springs, Ravndal often writes occasional verse, a style of poetry her mother also writes.  In this interview, Ravndal shares several occasion verse poems with Conrad Balliet and talks about the craft of writing.

There’s a bird that’s been trying to get in my house. He pecks at the window all day. What does he want? A bird flinging himself against a window ten hours a day does appear to to be trying to get inside. Go outside and look at the window from the bird’s perspective, and you’ll see your own reflection. The bird is met with a rival who answers his every parry with a thrust, who sings at the same time he does --the height of avian rudeness! Most importantly, it’s a rival who will not be vanquished, and will not go away. Nothing in his experience has prepared him for that.
