To Grutch. v.n. [corrupted for the sake of rhyme from grudge.] To envy; to repine; to be discontented.
The poor at the enclosure doth grutch,
Because of abuses that fall,
Lest some men should have but too much,
And some again nothing at all. Tusser's Husbandry.
But what we're born for we must bear,
Our frail condition it is such,
That what to all may happen here,
If't chance to me, I must not grutch. Ben. Johnson.
