To a Skylark

To a Skylark

by Percy Bysshe Shelley

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

This one is clean as a whistle—definitely safe for all ages. It does contain the line "panted forth a flood of rapture so divine" (65), but sadly, when you read it in context it's not nearly as scandalous as it sounds.
