Epitaph for an Old Woman

Epitaph for an Old Woman

  

by Octavio Paz

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG

Though a husband and wife are mentioned, there is no sexual content in this poem. There is some trembling going on here, though, which—depending on how you read—might indicate some sort of mystical union between the two.
