His every member grueing with delight,
At once by tokens manifest he spies
That they are here,
I thought you'd like a little bit of Hartley Coleridge's translation of Statius, it being Monday and all. Not that it's a good poem or anything like that, but it does contain a very late (1847) instance of the verb grue. Grue meant shudder and people used to grue a lot back in the Middle Ages, especially if they were Scottish or Northern. Indeed, most examples of the word grue are taken from incomprehensibly Scottish historical texts, which is why I chose Coleridge.
Modern Southerners never grue. In fact, modern Southerners are so damned tough that most of us don't even know the meaning of the word grue, which is odd as we all know the meaning of the word gruesome.
