An Irish Airman Foresees His Death

An Irish Airman Foresees His Death

by W.B. Yeats

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

Let's see: one dude, an airplane, and war. That's not exactly a recipe for steam. No sex in this poem folks; it's too somber and serious for that.
