Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


We're sorry: no sex. Nope. Everybody has their clothes on, and the most frequent visitor is a flower. Yeah, we know that that's kind of a let-down in a poem that, from its title, promise all sorts of romance. But hey, at least there's a perfect limousine to think about, right?
