Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


"Eldorado" is a serious, somber, and kind of scary poem. There's really nothing sexual about it. Okay, so maybe two dudes do meet up in the middle of nowhere, but one of them is a ghost, and their interaction isn't sexual at all. The knight stops and asks the pilgrim for directions, and then he's on his way.
