De Veneratione Parentum

Here is a distich by Michele Verinus:

De Veneratione Parentum
Qui cupis esse senex, caros venerare parentes;
Quae patri facies, filius illa tibi.

The vocabulary is keyed to the DCC Latin Vocabulary list. There are two words in this poem that are not on the DCC list:

venerātio (venerātiōnis, f.): reverence, worship
veneror, venerārī: honor, revere

cārus -a -um: dear
cupiō -ere -īvī -ītum: desire
dē: down from, about, concerning (+ abl.)
faciō facere fēcī factum: do, make
filia -ae f.; filius -ī m.: daughter; son
ille illa illud: that
parēns -ntis m./f.: parent
pater patris m.: father, ancestor
qui quae quod: who, which, what / quis quid: who? what? which?
senex -is m.: old man, elder; senior, older
sum, esse, fuī: be, exist
tū tuī tibi tē: you (sing.)
