Examples from texts

The rabbits loved the trimmed lawns of the athletic fields, and as Ruth approached she’d see their dark forms line up along the white chalk of the farthest boundaries like some sort of tiny sports team.
A los conejos les encantaba el césped cortado de las pistas de atletismo, y Ruth veía, al acercarse, cómo sus formas oscuras se alineaban a lo largo de los más alejados límites señalados con tiza blanca, como una especie de equipo diminuto.

In the courtyard I saw that a space had been cleared in the snow. Squares of different sizes had been chalked on the exposed ground and half a dozen monks were playing a game that involved making intricate steps on the throw of a dice.
Por el camino vi una zona despejada de nieve, en la que había varios cuadrados de diferentes tamaños pintados con tiza. Media docena de monjes jugaban a saltar de uno a otro según el número que saliera al tirar un dado.
