At the round earth's imagined corners (Holy Sonnet 7)

At the round earth's imagined corners (Holy Sonnet 7)

by John Donne

Analysis: Sex Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

There's not any sex in Holy Sonnet 7. We have a list of different kinds of death, a pardon signed with blood, and a man trying to repent for his sins, but there is absolutely no mention of sex.
