Summary/Abstract: The object of analysis here is the imaging which uses the motifs of animals, typical of Sebyła’s “dark imagination”. The author of this article associates the presence of the animals with the space of childhood (the water of a pond, the moon, a mill, muddy darkness). In this lyrical poetry the motifs of animals function as metaphors, allegories, and symbols, while also referring to specific observations. The reader of Sebyła’s poetry can see and hear a horse or a rat, because the musical memory of the poet stores the voices remembered from childhood. The sensitive imagination of the poet, a bard who thinks through images, is the tremendous value of this poetry.
