In Pigrum

This is a poem from the Greek Anthology rendered into Latin by Raimondo Cunich; you can read his Epigrammata Anthologiae Graecorum online.

In Pigrum
Quod piger in somno est sibi visus currere Marcus,
Somnum odit, rursus currere ne incipiat.

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

Marcus (Marcī, m.): Marcus, Mark
piger, pigra, pigrum: lazy, slow, dull

currō currere cucurrī cursum: run
in: in, on (+ abl.); into, onto (+ acc)
incipiō -cipere -cēpī -ceptum: begin
nē: lest, that not
ōdī ōdisse: hate
qui quae quod: who, which, what / quis quid: who? what? which?
rūrsus: back, again
somnus -ī m.: sleep, slumber; (pl.) dreams
sui, sibi, sē: him- her- itself
sum, esse, fuī: be, exist
videō vidēre vīdī vīsum: see
