One and the Same Picture

"Wild on woodland ways your sires
Flashed like fires:
Fair as flame and fierce and fleet

Here today
Rest or roams their radiant child,
Vanquished not, but reconciled,
Free from curb of aught above
Save the lovely curb of love."

-Algernon Charles Swinburne

Please critique and comment, the things I did are:
