Quis matrem...

This distich comes from the Florilegium Gottingense edited by Voigt.

Quis matrem, nisi mentis inops, in funere nati
Flere vetat? Non hoc ipsa monenda loco.

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:

inops, inopis - needy, lacking, destitute

fleo flēre flēvī flētum: weep
fūnus, funeris n.: funeral; death; dead body
hic, haec, hoc: this; hōc, on this account
in: in, on (+ abl.); into onto (+ acc)
ipse, ipsa, ipsum: him- her- itself
locus -ī m.: place; loca (n. pl.) region
māter, mātris f.: mother
mēns mentis f.: mind
moneo -ēre monuī monitum: warn, advise
nātus -ī m.: son
nisi/nī: if not, unless
nōn: not
qui, quae, quod: who, which, what; quis quid: who? what? which?
veto -āre vetuī vetītum: forbid
