Mores Parentis

Here is today's distich by Michele Verinus:

Mores Parentis
Saepe patris mores imitatur filius infans:
Qualis erat mater, filia talis erit.



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

imitor, -ārī - imitate, copy, mimic
infans, infantis - without speech; an infant

filia -ae f.; filius -ī m.: daughter; son
māter mātris f.: mother
mōs mōris m.: custom, habit; (pl.) character
parēns -ntis m./f.: parent
pater patris m.: father, ancestor
quālis -e: of what kind? what?
saepe: often
sum, esse, fuī: be, exist
tālis tale: such
