Omnis homo quacumque domo...

Here is another Rhyming Distich, and here are some more posts with Rhyming Distichs. I found this poem in the collection Philosophia Patrum edited by Julius Wegeler.

Omnis homo quacumque domo, qua sede moratur,
Provideat quando taceat, vel quando loquatur.

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:

prōvideo -ēre, prōvīdī, prōvīsum - foresee, provide for, make provision

domus -ūs f.: house, home
homo hominis m.: human being
loquor loquī locūtus sum: speak, talk
moror -ārī morātus sum: delay
omnis -e: all, every, as a whole
quandō: when?
quī-, quae-, quodcumque: who-, whatever
sēdēs -is m.: seat, abode, habitation
taceo -ēre -uī -itum: be silent; tacitus -a -um, silent
vel: or else, or; even; vel . . . vel, either… or
