Power Test

First, the wind took its turn and blew with all its might. The more it blew the more the traveler held his clothes tightly around his body to save himself from cold.

Then, came the sun’s turn. All it did was to shine. Gradually, the traveler grew warmer and warmer. And ultimately it became so unbearably   hot that the traveler had to throw away almost all his clothing. Thus the sun proved his power and registered its victory over the wind.
