Hölderlin Epigram: Sophokles

Many tried in vain to tell of happiness happily,
     Here at last it speaks to me, as it mourns itself.

----------------------------------------------------------------------
Viele versuchten umsonst das Freudigste freudig zu sagen,
     Hier spricht endlich es mir, hier in der Trauer sich aus.
