How snartly the moon does look tonight!
She creeps across the heavens,
weedly thracking into every star she meets —
even scrutching the moon a time or two.

Day Eighteen:   Write a poem that incorporates neologisms.
A neologism (/nˈɒləɪzəm/; from Greek  νέο- néo-, “new” and λόγος  lógos, “speech, utterance”) is the name for a relatively recent or isolated term, word, or phrase.  It could be a made up word or phrase.  Lewis Carroll employed delightful neologisms in Jabberwocky.   Who cannot recite: 

’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.
