The Wind and the Sun: A Gentle Nature Tale


In this short Aesop’s fable, the Wind and the Sun have a contest to see who can make a man below them on the earth take off his coat first. One tries force. The other, gentleness. Accompanied with little Celtic harp.




According to Aristotle, Aesop was a startlingly ugly slave from Phrygia, now Turkey, born in 620 B.C. and brought to Greece. His brief stories, called fables, so impressed the ancient Greeks that Aesop was freed and given political responsibilities. Mr. Bodkin believes that Aesop’s clever and timeless fables are still the finest in the world and uses them routinely in GOLDEN RULE performances for schoolchildren.
