BY THE LAKE
'How many several small forevers

Whispered in the rind of the ear

Melissa, by this Mediterranean sea-edge, 

Captured and told? 

How many additions to the total silence?'
I know the ILDS discussion forum is not prone to discussing Durrell's poetry in terms of detailed context. 
But lines such as these from his poetry surely have an organic link with the Alexandria Quartet, and attempts to address these lines might be rewarding in its own way. 
Durrell has mentioned Melissa more than once in his poems and Clea at least once,  but never Justine.

Do you think Lawrence Durrell has got something here?
