The Sun Rising Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


We're as shocked as anyone, but John Donne wrote a love poem without veering off into sexual innuendos. Yep, as un-Donne as it is, other than the setting (two lovers waking up in the same bed), this is a pretty tame love poem. For the record, though, John Donne wrote some poems that would have made Hugh Hefner blush.
