Diane: I think the words in the second line are "He cut the long furrow before the swallow....".

As for line 9, I think it finishes with "for fallow and plain".

As for "brinded", the Wiktionary tells me that it means "having a streaky or patchy pattern".

It now makes almost complete sense; apart from line 9!
