Slow, Slow, Fresh Fount Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


While the story of Echo and Narcissus that is the backdrop of Jonson's poem is sexually suggestive, "Slow, Slow, Fresh Fount" isn't very sexual at all. Nope, this one's all about grief, folks. Death, sadness, pain – these are the poem's real concerns, not sex.
