Non oculis nota...

Here is today's Rhyming Distich, and here are some more posts with Rhyming Distichs. This one comes from the Florilegium Gottingense edited by Voigt.

Non oculis nota res est a corde remota,
Cordi raro datur, oculis quod raro notatur.

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

noto -āre - mark, observe, write

ā, ab, abs: from, by (+abl.)
cor cordis n.: heart; cordī est, it is pleasing to (+ dat.)
do dare dedī datum: give
nōn: not
nōsco nōscere nōvī nōtum: learn, know
oculus -ī m.: eye
qui, quae, quod: who, which, what; quis quid: who? what? which?
rarus -a -um: wide apart, loose, thin; rare seldom
removeo -ēre -mōvī -mōtum: move back, withdraw, remove
rēs reī f.: thing (rēs pūblica, commonwealth; rēs familiāris, family property, estate; rēs mīlitāris, art of war; rēs novae, revolution)
sum, esse, fuī: be, exist
