Anecdote of the Jar Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG

While there's certainly no explicit mention of sex and violence in this poem, the second to last line, which claims that the jar "does not give of bird or bush," points towards the wilderness' power of procreation. It might take a mature mind to fully get this poem, but there's no content that should be restricted to mature audiences only.
