THE TWILIGHT OF THE GODS

`I saw the cloud coming. . . . '
On that day she gave him one of his last moments of happiness. After the conclusion of the Colonial Exposition he suffered from the lack of an outlet for his energy which remained intact and young. For the man of action, as for the Don Juan, old age is terrible. Born to create and to command, in the little Lorraine village of Thorey he was like the sovereign of a tiny kingdom.
`But good Lord,' he said to me, `can't they see that I am champing at the bit with impatience? Can't I still serve? Won't they give me some work to do? ... No! ... They think I am no longer good for anything ... I have been written off as dead.'
`Monsieur le Marechal, they can't leave a man like you inactive ... The government will find something.'
`Will find, my friend! ... Will find! ... That's all very well, but I am almost eighty years old ... If I am to make a career it's time for me to get started.'
When he died in 1934 I was in England. I returned immediately and rushed to Thorey, too late to attend his funeral. But he remains present among us and there are some of us Frenchmen on the earth who, in our days of despair and loneliness, feel ourselves united in hope by the memory of Lyautey.
