Summary/Abstract: The article constitutes an attempt at interpretation of a poem written in memory of Karol Szymanowski. The author demonstrates how the catastrophic imagery is realized in the poem through the artistic form of a terza rima. Moreover, the author points to the alternation between “dream” and “word,” where “dream” situates the artist and his art on the side of the metaphysics of the unspeakable, and “word” – on the side of the quotidian existence.
