Ubi Dolemus

155     -     156     -     157

Ubi Dolemus
Est illic oculus, ubi res sunt, quas adamamus;
Est ibi nostra manus, qua nos in parte dolemus.

Source: Florilegium Gottingense (ed. Voigt), 334. Meter: Dactylic Hexameter. Note that the relative pronoun is part of the prepositional phrase: in qua parte.

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:

adamō, adamāre: love deeply

doleo -ēre doluī: feel pain or grief, grieve
ibi: there
illīc at that place, there; illinc, from that place
in: in, on (+ abl.); into onto (+ acc)
manus -ūs m.: hand; band of men
nōs, nostrum/nostrī nobis nōs: we
noster nostra nostrum: our
oculus -ī m.: eye
pars, partis f.: part
qui, quae, quod: who, which, what; quis quid: who? what? which?
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
ubi: where, when
