Analysis

Ode to the West Wind Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

Unless you can turn the words "Make me thy lyre" into some kind of weird sexual innuendo, this is a totally sexless poem. There might be something sort of like sexual desire in the speaker’s wish that he could totally fuse himself with the West Wind, but it’s an ethereal head-in-the-clouds kind of fusion, not a hot, steamy, physical one.
