Bad                     Good
Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Engrave this Quote There was a little girl
Who had a little curl
Right in the middle of her forehead;
And when she was good,
She was very, very good
But when she was bad she was horrid.

The story goes that Longfellow denied writing this, but according to The Great American Baby Almanac he finally admitted writing it saying When I recall my juvenile poems and prose sketches, I wish that they were forgotten entirely. They however cling to one's skirt with a terrible grasp.
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow Tell a Friend
