    But when the sun was getting low and everything seemed most bewildering and discouraging, I found beautiful Calypso on the mossy bank of a stream, growing not in the ground but on a bed of yellow mosses in which its small white bulb had found a soft nest and from which its one leaf and one flower sprung. The flower was white and made the impression of the utmost simple purity like a snowflower. No other bloom was near it, for the bog a short distance below the surface was still frozen, and the water was ice cold. It seemed the most spiritual of all the flower people I had ever met. I sat down beside it and fairly cried for joy.

    In John Muir’s The Calypso Boreals, he paints a picture of beauty in both the complexity and simplicity in a garden in which a calypso grows. By using words like “simple purity” and “softness”, Muir is able convey how beautiful the garden is to him. By utilizing such diction, the author gains the ability to add imagery and emotions into his work. Change Some of the words to mach your own tho.
