The Voice

The Voice


by Thomas Hardy

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


"The Voice" is much more likely to inspire you to want to curl up in the fetal position and cry than it is to inspire you to make out with a cutie. Nope! Sorry, gang. Nothing sexy about this poem—at all.
