    It probably means, "going over the same thing in his thoughts; thinking of something over and over in his head."

    2.the heavens broke. It started raining. The clouds broke open and the rain came down.
    3.Out [of] a beautiful spring shower, a cry for their loss.
    Another missing word. I think the idea is that the heavens were crying for the loss of the girl. Raining = the heavens crying.

    This doesn't appear to have been written by a native speaker. There are a few mistakes.
