[990] What light, what radiancy did the sun-god's chariot dart forth, and the moon above the heaven, where they ride through the gloom, [995] in the day that the city of Argos raised the stately chant of joy at my wedding, in honor of my marriage with Capaneus, alas! of the bronze armor? [1000] Now from my home in frantic haste with frenzied mind I rush to you, seeking to share with you the fire's bright flame and the same tomb, to be rid of my weary life, my suffering, in Hades; [1005] yes, for it is the sweetest death to die with those we love, if only fate will sanction it.
