It's about Isabel being brave

That Isabel was really something!

I wonder if she's a real litttle girl

or just made up.

If she's real, I'd like to meet her.

If she's not, she's even neater.

Great Poem!

This poem inspired me to become the bravest Isabel I can be!

It is interesting to note that Ogden Nash's wife was named Isabel. I would guess that he saw her as a courageous woman and therefore wrote this poem "about" her.

Isabel is the name of Ogden Nash's daughter, and I read somewhere that Ogden Nash's fmaily was an inspirtation for many of his poems so I'm guessing his daughter was the inspiration for this poem.
This Poem is the best of all!

This poem I should say is the best of Ogden Nash. This poem should be read more often to children. They would love as much as I like it!

some ppl here say isabel was her daughter and some say her wife to b brave u see nothing i think he was just inspired and not by his wife or daughter but by a person he met or saw just a friend or someone

Its a great poem. I have it in picture book format, and it was read to me countless times as a child. I still love it! He got the spelling wrong, though. :)
