    I think MOONGLADE is a beautiful word. Is it a word? Dictionary.com does not show it. It means the moon’s reflection on water.

    Imagine sitting on a balcony overlooking the dark waters of the lake, then slowly from among the dark pointy tips of pines rose the moon, august against the starless skies casting a moonglade on the water, shivering in early winter’s chill.
