Teen n.s. [tinan, Saxon, to kindle; tenen, Flemish, to vex; teonan, Saxon, injuries.] Sorrow; grief.
That barehead knight, for dread and doleful teen
Would fain have fled, ne durst approachen near. Fa. Qu.
Fry not in heartless grief and doleful teen. Spenser.
My heart bleeds
To think o' th' teene that I have turn'd you to. Shakesp.
Eighty odd years of sorrow have I seen,
And each hour's joy wreck'd with a week of teen. Shak.
