The Sun And The Thunder

“Now Mr. Sun was feeling lazy,” said Daddy, “and besides, this was his day for playing tag with the King of the Clouds and old King Thunder. For (would you believe it?) Mr. Sun is very fond of a good old-fashioned game of tag once in a while, and he began now trying to catch King Thunder.

As he did so, he got back of one of the clouds and it became quite dark on the earth. ‘Here,’ he said, ‘old King Thunder, come here! Those people down on the earth said they were glad you had stopped making such a noise! I wouldn’t stand it if I were you. Go back and tell them what you think of them! Roar your hardest!’

And sure enough, the Thunder and Rain began again, and the Earth People said, ‘We’re having one of those days when one moment the sun is shining and the next it is thundering and raining.'”
