By Georges Sand Part IV, Chapter While seated at the piano during a storm, Sand tells us, Chopin experienced a disturbing dream. H E saw himself drowned in a lake; heavy, icy drops of water fell rhythmically upon his breast, and when I made him listen to the sound of the drops of water which really were falling rhythmically on the roof, he denied chlpin having heard them.
