The paper is an attempt at reconstructing the poetics of early texts by Krystyna Miłobędzka, mostly the book of poems Spis z natury, written in 1960s – Miłobędzka’s poetic debut, unpublished at the time. By reading together the two poetic cycles comprising it – Anaglify and Małe mity – the author stresses the need to extend the non-anthropocentric reading to Anaglify with a postsecular interpretation implied by the multilevel structure of Małe mity. The paper also discusses four poems by Miłobędzka – Małże, Widziane w ogniu, Patrzące chwytliwe and Klee – published in 1960s in “Twórczość” magazine, not included in any book of poems. This allowed to identify possible relations between Miłobędzka’s early poetry and works by Francis Ponge and Paula Klee.
