Wind, Frost, and the Sun
A Russian Fairy Tale

A man once came across the sun, frost and wind and he bowed down low out of respect. 
But after he’d passed the wind, the frost and the sun began to argue who he’d bowed too.
“It was to me that he’d bowed of course,” the sun proclaimed. “So that I would not scorch him.”
“It was to me that he bowed for he fears me most,” Frost disagreed
“Liar,” Wind called the other two. “It was I he bowed to.”
Their argument continued until they were nearly at each other’s throats when they finally decided to ask the man who he’d bowed to, so they all chased after him.
“I bowed to the wind,” the man told them when he was caught.
“I’ll singe you lobster red!” The Sun Proclaimed in anger. “You’ll remember me!”
“Fear not for I will protect you from the heat,” the wind told the man.
“Then I’ll freeze you solid!” Frost snarled.
“Fear not friend for if I don’t blow the Frost cannot freeze near as cold,” Wind assured the man.
