NARRATOR
North Wind and Sun are discussing which of them is strongest.
NORTH WIND
I am stronger than you!
SUN
No, my friend, I am stronger than you.
NORTH WIND
Look, there is a traveler.
Whichever one of us can make him take off his coat
wins the argument.
SUN
Agreed. After you.
NARRATOR
Wind tries to affect the traveler.
He blows and howls with all his might.
TRAVELER
Good grief! It's a storm. I am very cold!
NARRATOR
The poor man pulls his coat more tightly around
his body to warm up.
NORTH WIND
Drat! It is not working! Now, it is your turn.
SUN
I will try.
NARRATOR
Sun shines with all his might.
TRAVELER
What strange weather! Now I am very hot.
NARRATOR
The traveler feels so warm that he takes off his coat.
NORTH WIND
Well Sun, you are stronger than I!
NARRATOR
The moral of the story: Gentleness works better than force.
(Persuasion works better than force.)

 

THE NORTH WIND AND THE SUN
by Wanda

NARRATOR
Powerful North Wind tried to chill blazing Sun's heated words
as they debated which of them was strongest.

NORTH WIND
(Blustering)
Without a doubt, I am mightier than you!
SUN
(Beaming)
Not so, my friend, my warming rays are more potent than your most Arctic blasts!
NORTH WIND
We need a test to prove ourselves! Look, there's a traveler.
Whichever one of us can force him to take off his coat
wins the argument.
SUN
Agreed. I will surely be able to encourage him to remove his coat.
But please, you go first. Give it your best gust!
NARRATOR
Wind bombards the traveler with his iciest blasts of air.
TRAVELER
Good grief! This frigid crosswind is very nasty!
NARRATOR
The unfortunate man shudders and draws his coat lapels up to his chin
in an effort to fend off hostile North Wind.
NORTH WIND
(Disgusted)
I don't believe it! It's not working! I guess I blew it.
O.K. Sun, it's your turn. GIve it your best burn!
SUN
(Chilled by the thought)
I don't think I'll have to go as far as a burn!
NARRATOR
The Sun smiles with gentle rays on the shivering traveler below him.
TRAVELER
What odd weather! Now it's so warm I don't even need my coat!.
NARRATOR
Relieved, the traveler happily removes his coat.
NORTH WIND
Well Sun, I'm convinced. You have proven your strength!
NARRATOR
The moral of the story: Persuasion works better than force.
