Longfellow experts - I have this old poem in my head about the little girl with a curl in the middle of her forehead. I think it was named " Jemima." Is this the name of it? kp

    I googled, " little girl with a curl...." , and found this in a website called THE WONDERING MINSTRALS

    (Poem #835)
    There Was a Little Girl
    There was a little girl,
    Who had a little curl,
    Right in the middle of her forehead.
    When she was good,
    She was very good indeed,
    But when she was bad she was horrid.
    - Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

    " There once was a girl who had a little curl right in the middle of her forehead. When she was good, she was very, very good, but when she was bad, she was horrid" . Don't know the author or the name, but it's one of my favorites from way back.
