Steaminess Rating


You could read into some of the language Donne uses to describe a compass and find a way to make a few "that's what she said" jokes, but this one is actually pretty tame compared to some Donne poems. It's a love poem, but this one is more sweet than spicy. Sorry to disappoint. If you are looking for dirtier Donne, try "The Flea".
