Hi there! :)

In the song:
ぎんなんの実を炒りながら家族というやさしい宇宙思うておりぬ
by Tawara Machi, what's the meaning of the ending -
思うておりぬ
I understand it's some kind of mix with classical Japanese, can you please help me figure it out?
Thanks!

It's 思っている.
思うて: the -te form of 思う
おり: 連用形 of おる
ぬ: 終止形 of the auxiliary verb ぬ for the perfect tense (for emphasis in this case)

Haven't you ever learned the classical Japanese at all?

It was a few years ago, and it's not easy to find good content on Classical Japanese online for some reason...
