A Route of Evanescence

A Route of Evanescence


by Emily Dickinson

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


This nature poem may be the closest we ever get to the literal "birds and bees," but if pollination goes down here, the reader isn't really sure of it. In fact, the bird may or may not make contact with the flowers at all.
