The Wind, the Sun, and Simon

By Georgie Adams

One day the Wind and the Sun had an argument.

The Wind said, “I can blow very hard. I’m stronger than you.”

The Sun smiled and said, “No, I am stronger than you.”

The Wind looked around and saw a boy. He was wearing a coat.

“Look,” said the Wind. “Let’s make that boy take off his coat. And we’ll see which of us is stronger.”

The Wind took a deep breath and blew hard.

“Dear me,” the boy who was called Simon said. And he buttoned his coat.

Then the Wind blew even harder. This time a storm of hailstones beat down from the clouds.

“Oh help!” cried Simon. He pulled the coat more tightly around him, and started running.

The Wind blew and blew but COULD NOT make the boy take off his coat.

“My turn now,” said the Sun.

He shone down out of a bright blue sky. The rays of sunshine touched the boy’s face and shoulders, and he felt warm. Simon undid one coat button…

The Sun shone brighter than ever. It grew hotter and hotter.

“I’m much too hot!” said Simon. And he … TOOK OFF HIS COAT.

“There!” said the Sun to the Wind. “I’ve won.”

The Wind agreed that the Sun was right.

And Simon ran to the fun fair and spent all afternoon on the merry-go-round.

Part One. Autumn in Ukraine

Autumn comes in September. Early autumn is a very beautiful time of the year. The weather is still warm and sunny. The leaves change their colour from green to yellow. But towards the end of October the weather gets colder and colder. There’s much rain and fog. Leaves fall from the trees and cover the ground. Birds fly away to warm countries. Low and heavy clouds hang in the sky. Nature slowly falls asleep for winter.

Part Two. Our Autumn Holidays

Last autumn we went to the local park. We had The Tourist Day there. We played sports games. We had different races. Our class won. We got the prize! That was a big holiday cake! We shared it with other pupils of our school. Then we sang songs around the fire. We enjoyed the day greatly.
