Thanks, FounDit!
"Blast" is "a gust of wind" here.

My thoughts still cling to the mouldering past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,


This is from "The Rainy Day" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
What does "fall thick" mean?

Thanks!

Some faces are like splendid gates of a castle,
On their smallest features our eyes always fasten


Is "fasten" a correct word here? Does the second line work like "their smallest features always get our eyes"?

Thanks!

Well, I'd suppose that yellow-nacked means with yellow neck Think
As to "band" I would like to hear the opinion of native speakers too.

The deep flaming water
Is cradling a swan
But shoreward it shortly
Will float back alone


Is "shoreward" a correct word? Does it work as "to the shore"?

Thanks!

Thanks, FounDit!

If I got it correct, I can't say something like,

I've just realized that I will not catch the flight.

and I must say

I've just realized that I don't catch the flight?
