The South Wind and the Sun were talking with each other about which of them was stronger. The pair saw a young woman under a tree. The stronger one will be the one who will send the woman away from under the tree. The sun started doing something. He started making his own sunlight. He made more of his own sunlight, he made more warmth, and so the woman went more to the center of the tree. The Sun stopped doing things and the wind started doing things, as planned. He started to blow his own breath. He pushed the clouds from the southern mountains to the top of the tree, and he chased away the warmth. The sky got darker, and it got colder. The young woman thought that the sky would become darker and would make lightning. So, she went from under the tree to home. And so it is the South Wind who is the stronger.
