Your mind thinks as it should,
And your mouth says as it should.
The words are right, your eyes are bright,
And there’s a smile across your face.
But your heart is absent; in a different place.

Some of Durrells writing is condescending or even racist, but this poem is very lovely and moving.
I especially love the last stanza of this poem by Durrell. 'And now lightly to kiss all whom sleep/Stitched up-and wake, my darling, wake.'
