- v. Simple past tense and past participle of downcast.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
It was not alone the olive tint of the skin, the mass of wavy dark hair tossed back from a high forehead, the sombre eyes, and the sad mouth, -- a mouth that had never grown into laughing curves through telling Yankee jokes, -- it was not these that gave him what the boys called a "kind of a downcasted look."
He looked real downcasted and sad, some as if he'd never thought on't in that light before.
