Tu miser es et eris...

Here is another Rhyming Distich, and here are some more posts with Rhyming Distichs. This little poem is from Gartner's Dicteria Proverbialia (1598).

Tu miser es et eris, si tangat te ars mulieris;
si tibi consultum, mulieris spernere vultum.

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:

sperno -ere, sprēvī, sprētum - scorn, reject, despise

ars artis f.: skill
cōnsulo -sulere -suluī -sultum: consult, plan
et: and
miser misera miserum: wretched, pitiable
mulier -eris f.: woman
sī: if
sum, esse, fuī: be, exist
tango -ere tetigī tāctum: touch
tū tuī tibi tē: you (sing.)
vultus -ūs m.: look, expression, face
