Andrew Motion's pearls o' wisdom [UK]:
As someone with no natural poetic rhythm and no innate feeling for the art form, I have always wondered whether it could be taught. Fingers crossed, I offer this thought to him.

"No," he answers honestly. "I don’t think you can make something from nothing, but I do think there is a lot you can do with something that is already there. I couldn’t go around an oyster bed prising open the oysters and shoving the pearls in them but what I do think is that I could make sure there is some grit in the water so that oysters can make the pearl."
