I need help asap!! Read the following paragraph from John muir's "the calypso borealis" and pay close attention to the words in bold. In one paragraph of 3 to 5 sentences, explain muir's use of diction and the mood his choice of words creates. Use proper spelling and grammar and your response.

    The rarest and most beautiful of the flowering plants I discovered on this first grand excursion was Calypso borealis (the Hider of the North). I had been fording streams more and more difficult to cross and wading bogs and swamps that seemed more and more extensive and more difficult to force one's way through. Entering one of these great tamarac and arbor-vitae swamps one morning, holding a general though very crooked course by compass, struggling through tangled drooping branches and over and under broad heaps of fallen trees, I began to fear that I would not be able to reach dry ground before dark, and therefore would have to pass the night in the swamp and began, faint and hungry, to plan a nest of branches on one of the largest trees or windfalls like a monkey's nest, or eagle's, or Indian's in the flooded forests of the Orinoco described by Humboldt.

    To sum it up he's basically talking about his struggles, his pain, his strife and his craving for something I.E (Hunger) but I honestly think if you re-read it a couple of times you'll understand it enough to where you can put a full 3-5 sentences.

    Well when you are thinking of a positive connotation you'd usually think of something that has a positive notation or meaning. So bulb isn't really positive, frail is a negative connotation, mosses is just a noun. so what does that leave?
