Yay me!

So I figured out a few things from this poem (I think) and that makes me happy because I thought I wasn't going to understand any of it. I don't know much about history or the Bible. So there was the repetition of "with a cargo of ___" and this cargo is what is precious to those people at that time.

I figure the three stanzas talk about three different ships going from oldest to newest and reflecting the obsession of the time. The first probably had to do with something that happened in biblical times and the last is during the Industrial Revolution (around the time this was written, right?).
