Analysis

When I have fears that I may cease to be Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

We have a feeling that, given a chance, this poem would be pretty steamy. It just doesn't ever get quite that far. Keats, you see, is a dreamer – so it's fitting that his poem would talk a whole lot about love without ever really getting to the good stuff. That's why this poem is still appropriate for all the kiddies.
