what do we mean by "among my skimming swallows;i make the netted sun beam dance"?
The lines mentioned by you are parts of two different ideas.
I slip, I slide, I gloom, I glance,
Among my skimming swallows ;
I (the brook) move around in slipping and sliding motion passing through the dark and bright parts of the place while my swallows skim my surface for food.
I make the netted sunbeam dance
Against my sandy shallows.
The beams of the sun pass through my waves which create a netted obstruction for them. In the process, the beams scatter and sparkle as if they are dancing at my bed.
