Steaminess Rating


While some of the other sonnets in Astrophel and Stella can get pretty sexual and steamy, "Come Sleep! O Sleep" is pretty clean. Most of the poem is about suffering and despair (pretty unsexy) and the speaker begging for Sleep to come and release him. Once he gets to sleep, however, things will most certainly go from PG to PG-13, maybe even R. Gasp.
