somnambular (comparative more somnambular, superlative most somnambular)

  1. sleepy; asleep
    • Elizabeth Barrett Browning
      And while the palpitating peaks break out
      Ecstatic from somnambular repose
      With answers to the presence and the shout,
      We, poets of the people, who take part
      With elemental justice, natural right,
      Join in our echoes also, nor refrain.
