Analysis

To a Mouse Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

A lot of Robert Burns' poems are about sex and love, but not this one. This one deals exclusively with the sad situation of a mouse that gets turned out of its nest before the winter. Not a lot of sex here. Just a mouse house demolition.
