South Wind and the Sun, The

James Whitcomb Riley Indiana University Press ePub

O THE South Wind and the Sun

How each loved the other one—

Full of fancy—full of folly—

Full of jollity and fun!

How they romped and ran about,

Like two boys when school is out,

With glowing face, and lisping lip,

Low laugh, and lifted shout!

And the South Wind—he was dressed

With a ribbon round his breast

That floated, flapped and fluttered

In a riotous unrest,

And a drapery of mist

From the shoulder and the wrist

Flowing backward with the motion

Of the waving hand he kissed.

And the Sun had on a crown

Wrought of gilded thistledown,

And a scarf of velvet vapor,

And a raveled-rainbow gown;

And his tinsel-tangled hair,

Tossed and lost upon the air,

Was glossier and flossier

Than any anywhere.

And the South Wind’s eyes were two

Little dancing drops of dew,

As he puffed his cheeks, and pursed his lips,

And blew and blew and blew!

Area of a Triangle

The area of a two-dimensional figure is the number of square units enclosed by the figure. A square unit is the space enclosed by a 1 unit by 1 unit square.

To find the area of a triangle you multiply half the base of the triangle by its height.

In a triangle, any side is a base. The height is an altitude, from the base. Remember, an altitude is a perpendicular segment from the base to the angle opposite the base.

Rules for Finding the Area of a Triangle

1. Identify the base. Any side of the triangle can be the base.

2. Identify the height. The height can be inside, or outside the triangle.

1

3. The area is calculated by using the following formula: A = _

2 bh.

A

Example

Find the area of the triangle to the right.

B

Step 1 Identify the base. Any side of the

The base is BC ; BC = 10

triangle can be the base.

Step 2 Identify the height. The height can

be inside, or outside the triangle.

Step 3 The area is calculated by using the

following formula: A = _12 bh.

In a right triangle, the height can be the other leg, so, AB is the height; AB = 8

UNCLE Sidney, when he wuz here,

Maked me a squirtgun out o’ some

Elder-bushes ’at growed out near

Where wuz the brickyard—’way out clear

To where the toll-gate come!

So when we walked back home again,

He maked it, out in our woodhouse where

Wuz the old workbench, an’ the old jack-plane,

An’ the old ’pokeshave, an’ the tools all lay’n’

Ist like he wants ’em there.

He sawed it first with the old hand-saw;

An’ nen he peeled off the bark, an’ got

Some glass an’ scraped it; an’ told ’bout Pa,

When he wuz a boy an’ fooled his Ma,

An’ the whippin’ ’at he caught.

Nen Uncle Sidney, he took an’ filed

A’ old arn ramrod; an’ one o’ the ends

He screwed fast into the vise; an’ smiled,

Thinkin’, he said, o’ when he wuz a child,

’Fore him an’ Pa wuz mens.

He punched out the peth, an’ nen he put

A plug in the end with a hole notched through;

Nen took the old drawey-knife an’ cut
