“Poetry in Motion” is a UK number-one hit single in 1961, recorded amongst others by Johnny Tillotson. The song was written by Paul Kaufman (1930–1999) and Mike Anthony (born 1930), who said that the inspiration for it came from looking up from their work and seeing a procession of young ladies from a nearby school pass by on the sidewalk outside each afternoon.
