Topic: fall thick
Posted: Saturday, October 17, 2020 11:36:19 AM
"My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the mouldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast,
And the days are dark and dreary."

"Fall thick," I think refers to an abundance. I imagine a thick blanket of snow ( although there's no reference to snow in the actual poem)
It's as if the poet is reminiscing about the past, his youth, (the hopes of his youth)and his mind is filled with memories. they've fallen thick; there's just so much of them
