THE EARTHLY PARADISE

bordered by chestnut trees. On the morning of that day we would be wakened by the mooing of cows, the whinnying of horses and the bleating of sheep. We would run to the window. Peasants with sticks or whips in their hands would be bustling among the animals. It was one of our rare contacts with country life. We knew scarcely anything of the fields, the farm's activity, or the tilling of the soil. Our walks as children were limited to the roads that led from Elbeuf toward the uplands and to the woods that bordered those roads. These short walks were enlivened by flower picking. In the spring the forests of Normandy were full of primroses, anemones, cowslips, and periwinkles. We would make bright delicate bunches of them which we clutched so tightly that they withered in our hands before we got home.
`Throw away your flowers,' Maman would say to me as we came into town. `Don't you see they are dead? ...'
I was to discover in the course of my life that the most coveted joys of life die as soon as they are gathered, like the anemones of my childhood. But at that time my hopes were irrepressible and the fate of my flowers never kept me next day from picking another bunch. When I try to recall the long-haired child that used to climb the banks and look for blackberries among the bushes, I find nothing but happy memories. What a peaceful life had been arranged -for us, and how little we knew of the world and its ways!
