This Lime-Tree Bower My Prison

This Lime-Tree Bower My Prison

by Samuel Taylor Coleridge

Analysis: Sex Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

There's no sex here. However, some people think that Coleridge's wife was the one who spilled the skillet of hot milk on his foot. In fact, the story of Coleridge's marriage is an interesting one, but it has nothing to do with this poem.
