Where the Sidewalk Ends

Where the Sidewalk Ends


by Shel Silverstein

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?


This poem takes us back to a land far too pure and innocent to involve sex. So read it aloud to whomever you'd like, and prepare for quite a hike back to the realm of the untarnished imagination.
