Quod Fatuus Credit

I found this poem in the collection Philosophia Patrum edited by Julius Wegeler.

Quod Fatuus Credit
Stultus quando videt, quod pulchra puellula ridet,
Mox fatuus credit se quod amare velit.


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

fatuus, -a, -um: foolish, idiotic
stultus, -a, -um: foolish, silly; fool

amō -āre: to love; amans -ntis m./f.: lover
crēdō crēdere crēdidī crēditum: believe
mox: soon
puella -ae f.: girl; girl-friend; diminutive puellula
pulcher -chra -chrum: beautiful
quandō: when?; since; si quando: if ever
qui quae quod: who, which, what / quis quid: who? what? which?
rīdeō -ēre rīsī rīsum: laugh, laugh at
sui, sibi, sē: him- her- itself
videō vidēre vīdī vīsum: see
volō velle voluī: wish, be willing
