Little Girl

The poem “ Little Girl” is about a little girl and her way of being good and bad. The poem engages the readers with a good flow of rhythm with rhyming words. The authorship of the poem "There Was a Little Girl" is attributed to Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, an American poet who lived in the 19th century. 

There was a little 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.


The first four lines of the poem introduce us to a little girl. She's special because she has a curl of hair right in the middle of her forehead. Imagine a small twist of hair in the center of her forehead. It's a unique feature that makes her stand out. 

The last four lines of the poem tell us about the little girl's behavior. When she's being good, she's good! She's kind, polite, and does what she's supposed to. But when she's being bad, she can be naughty! The word "horrid" means very bad or unpleasant. So, when she's not behaving well she can be quite mischievous.
