You'd go to the ends of the earth, of course.
And what would you find? Gold? Diamonds? The Crown Jewels which Bad King John lost in the Wash?
(I spent ages - years - wondering how anyone can lose his crown in the wash. It turned out in the end that the Wash in question was the large area of marshland in Eastern England rather than the mediaeval equivalent of a tumble drier. I don't think I've ever quite got over the disappointment.)
The obvious thing to do now is to write something about the nature of treasure, and give you one or two entertaining and thought-provoking examples.

But, actually, as the sun is shining and the air is full of birdsong that needs listening to, I'm going to go out and leave it to you to discover your treasure for yourselves.
Spot the frippet: treasure. This word comes from the Old French tresor, from the Latin thēsaurus, something hoarded.
