Q: What does An important side effect of something is ... mean?
A: A side-effect is something you don't want/plan to happen (usually), but which is likely to happen because of something you're doing. Sometimes they can be good, but they're usually bad. You usually hear this word when talking about medicine.

Example: "The antibiotics will cure your infection, but you may experience side-effects of vomiting, headache, and sleepiness."

Q: What does By the side of the mill with its sails hanging still and the bridge so quaint mean?
A: To have your heart broken is to have something make you unbearably sad, it changes your life. In this case the mens' hearts are broken because they have no place in their life for the girls, they only care about art. They feel regrettable, but that's the way it is. Because of this feeling they have for art, and how they have no place in their life for the girls, they say that they have to "part" or leave each other, go separate directions in life.

I've never heard the phrase "ease the smart", but I see you have 心 in your Japanese sentence. Did you mean "ease the heart"? If so, it is saying that even though they will leave each other, it will be less painful for their hearts if they can just forget it, not think about what they're having to do.

I hope this helps! Ask as many questions as you need and I will do my best for you.
