Non orat semper...

This little poem is from Gartner's Dicteria Proverbialia (1598).

Non orat semper stans intra templa frequenter,
Sed quoque lascivas interdum quaerit amicas.

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:

amīcus -a -um: friendly; (as subst.) friend
frequens -ntis: in large numbers, often

ōro -āre: pray
quaero -ere -sīvī -situm: seek, inquire
quoque: also, too
sed: but
semper: always, ever
sto stāre stetī statum: stand
