Notes

  • First published in the Empire in April 1861 titled 'The Mountains'. Reed (1966) indicates that this is also the MS title.

  • Appeared in Bell's Life in Sydney in November 1861 with two lines omitted from the seventh verse. This appears to have been a type-setting error, for in the following week's issue, Bell's Life published a letter from Kendall, in which he drew attention to the omission and requested that the verse be republished with the missing lines reinstated in italics.
