Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

Approved for general audiences, this poem doesn't contain any racy references. But it does include sensual imagery ("delicate as the skin over a girl's wrist"). The poem also uses language and symbols associated with romantic love (the two ponies are like "swans" that "love each other").
