La Somnambule (Sleep-Walker), Marc Chagall

a siren calls
it is the moon

the cat hears
and wisely stays

too many nights spent
under its spell

Jane Dougherty’s Weekly Poetry Challenge #39: Sleep walking asks us to write a poem inspired by Marc Chagall’s La Somnambule (Sleep-Walker). Instead of the suggested cinquain, I’ve gone with free verse.
