i've finally finished translating the north wind and sun story into
narethanaal... which is much better than the one i originally
submitted long ago and far away.. and still open to revision...
The North Wind and Sun were disputing which was the stronger, when a
traveler came along wrapped in a warm cloak. They agreed that the
first one to succeed in making the traveler take off his cloak should
be stronger than the other. Then the North Wind blew as hard as he
could, but the more he blew, the closer did the traveler fold his
cloak around him, and at last the North Wind gave up the attempt.
Then the Sun shined out warmly, and immediately the traveler took off
his cloak. And so the North Wind was obliged to confess that the sun
was the stronger of the two.

translated from narethanaal back into english:
the wind and sun were disagreeing who was stronger... when a traveler
came surrounded by a warm blanket... they agreed that the first to
make the travelers blanket be removed would be regarded as
stronger... then the wind blew... the wind blew more... the traveler
was surrounded closer by his blanket... finally the wind gave up...
the sun shone with much heat... the traveler immediately removed his
blanket... so the wind was forced to admit a stronger sun...
