Lullaby, used as a form of contemporary poetry, loses its real, situational references, which was keeping in the folk literature and partly in the literature for children. Transfer of the speech genre in the realm of literary means an increased degree of metaphoricalness of communication. Lullaby as transgenre enter into connections with a threnody, an elegy, lament, haiku (e.g. in poetry of Eugeniusz Tkaczyszyn–Dycki, Wojciech Kass, Zbigniew Herbert). Lullaby as a occasional literature is also understood otherwise — a species is becoming an opportunity to present themselves entity, indicate antinomity of the world, genological camouflage, though its relationship with the dream themes still exists. Folk patterns are undergoing artistic and literary modifications, structural and semantic transformations, and the function of text is changing (e. g. in poetry of Teresa Ferenc, Anna Janko, Anna Kamieńska, Ernest Bryll, Józef Baran, Julia Hartwig, Adam Zagajewski).
