The Yeti Story

Hello and thank you for stopping by.

Today, another store window display, this time at Saks Fifth Avenue. I like this display a lot because it's a storybook come alive. There's piped-in music and moving parts inside the windows.

This year, it tells of "The Yeti Story"

In a cold Russian workshop, a long time ago
A furry team of workers were all making snow.
One worker named YETI made beautiful flakes
But his boss only cared for avoiding mistakes.

Mama said, "Yeti, you're so very gifted
If they don't like your art, it'll be best if you drifted."
So the Yeti set off and quietly vowed, 
"I'll invent splendid flakes that will make you both proud."

His travels would take him all over the earth
To learn about snow from the Arctic to Perth.
Then finally, New York! The most promised of lands!
For a snow-maker artist with magical hands.

He set up a lab, perfecting the snow
With fridges and freezers set to 14 below.
But something was missing, the snowflakes weren't right
They had to be bathed in the holiday light.

Maybe Saks was the answer! It's brighter than heaven!
Yeti raised down to catch a Manhattan-bound 7.

He squeezed his way during rush hour drama
With thousands of people (one looked like his mama).

He climbed Saks and made snow that was brilliantly pretty
And to that day, the Yeti crafts flakes for the city.

The moral? Don't give up! Be artful! Be ready!
And set your sights high -- you just might see a Yeti.
