gold ! what potent powers are thine,”
“Thou demigod, almost divine!”
1858 Charles Fenerty leaves his community and
travels to Australia. He goes there to look
for adventure and to write for a local newspaper.
During his time in Australia he writes several
poems, one of the is his three part cantos called
Hid Treasure. The poem is basically about a
group of mates who decide to look for Captain
Kidd's treasure. But for Fenerty it's a test
of faith and how far one goes for greed.
