|The Wind and Sun - Fable|
A traveler walking steady his path in life
from afar powerful wind and sun observed
weathered cloak protecting him from strife
facing numerous trials he never swerved
Mighty wind blows, cold brushes raw skin
shaking off chills, pulling his cloak tighter
facing forceful element, determined to win
thinking of her, harsh journey a bit lighter
Behind dark clouds, sun peeks it's head
light warms soft flesh, loosening her cloak
sleeping under a tree, tulips bloom soft bed
thoughts of him, in gentle silence she woke
Eyes wide open, his silhouette comes in view
baring his soul slowly removing worn cloak
two reaching higher dreams vast sky of blue
freeing wild spirits, breaking yellow yoke
which is a greater force the sun or the wind?
