Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


This poem doesn't really talk about sex. It talks about being in love, but even then none of the mushy stuff gets mentioned. It might take a mature mind to really grasp this poem, but there's no explicit sexuality, or even a sexual undercurrent.
