There’s rue for you.

Rue is one of those words we don’t use nearly enough anymore. There’s the flower, I suppose, but because I don’t hang out with gardeners or florists I don’t hear that a lot. And there’s “rue the day” but I almost never hear rue used without “the day.” I’m not sure how I’d even use it in modern life.
“After the meal, I began to rue my decision to have fries with that.”?
I mean…I’d just use regret. But.
There’s a world of missing overlap if we don’t use rue so much. Let’s try to bring it back.
