The Wild Iris

by Louise Glück

Analysis: Steaminess Rating

Exactly how steamy is this poem?

G

"The Wild Iris" is approved for general audiences, so feel free to read it aloud to your younger brothers and sisters (if you can persuade them to sit still and listen). The poem includes plenty of references to nature but no mention of the birds and the bees.
