Quod sibi quisque...

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

Quod sibi quisque serit praesentis tempore vitae,
Hoc sibi messis erit dum dicitur: Ite, venite!

The vocabulary is keyed to the DCC Latin Vocabulary list. There are two words which are not on the DCC list:

messis, messis f. - harvest

dīco dīcere dīxī dictum: say; causam dicere, plead a case; diem dicere, appoint a day
dum: while (+ indic.); until (+ subj.); provided that (+ subj.)
eo īre iī/īvī itum: go
hic, haec, hoc: this; hōc, on this account
praesēns -ntis: present, in person, ready
qui, quae, quod: who, which, what; quis quid: who? what? which?
quis-, quae-, quidque: each one, everyone
sui, sibi, sē: him- her- itself
sum, esse, fuī: be, exist
tempus -oris n.: time
venio -īre vēnī ventum: come
