The Chimney Sweeper (Songs of Experience)

The Chimney Sweeper (Songs of Experience)

  

by William Blake

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

Blake's poem is about a child who has, essentially, been abandoned by his parents. He is sitting in the snow and weeping. There is nothing sexual going on here.
