THE THREE KINGS.                     65
Who are these that ride so fast o'er the desert's sandy
road, That have tracked the Red Sea shore, and have swum
the torrents broad; Whose camels' bells are tinkling through the long and
starry night For they ride like men pursued, like the vanquished
of a fight?
Who are these that ride so fast ? They are eastern monarchs three,
Who have laid aside their crowns, and renounced their high degree ;
The eyes they love, the hearts they prize, the well-known voices kind,
Their people's tents, their native plains, they've left them all behind.
