Point of Snow Return

‘The Point of Snow Return’ celebrates the much loved central character in The Snowman (1982). Hard to believe, but the wonderful, magical animated feature is now 40 years old! SciFiPulse published The Snowman: At 40 earlier this week. The feature discusses the legacy of the story brought to the screen, based on the story by Raymond Briggs.

 

Point of Snow Return

The Snowman is

now forty turned,

a story that’s

on our soul burned

 

From pureness the

being was made,

from memory

will never fade

 

An idea

born out of play,

product of a

magical day

 

up from the Earth

into the skies

in one short night

he lives and dies

 

Much more than just

childhood themes,

a fable of

life, death and dreams

 

 

As we head into 2023 The Snowman will enter it’s 41st year! It seemed from the very that start of that the animated short was destined to go beyond the point of snow return . . . This completes this year’s festive editions of weekly Friday fun,. But don’t worry, there’ll be plenty of regular editions coming to you in 2023! Take care dear readers!
