A Song of Despair Steaminess Rating

By Pablo Neruda

Steaminess Rating

PG-13

Things are a bit explicit in this poem. The speaker did have sexual relations with that woman, and he does make a note of it. Still, the steaminess doesn't go too far beyond "entwined bodies" and "mad coupling," so you might blush a little but you won't get in trouble for reading this in public.
