Piedra de sol

Piedra de sol

by Octavio Paz

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

PG

The speaker in the poem is definitely interested in the transcendence he claims comes from making love, but he's a pretty proper old chap: nothing too graphic here, but there is some innuendo.
