Statue Riddle

Four guardians, four flames, standing proud in line.

The First to light his fire dared not march on the end.

The Second, by the First, played a woeful lament.

The Third kept close to his faithful beast / The Fourth marched not beside the First, yet like the Second, played a tune. / And thus they stood o’er their queen, who slept beneath flickering stars.
