Examples from texts

Her face, above a spotted dress of dark blue crepe-de-chine, contained no facet or gleam of beauty, but there was an immediately perceptible vitality about her as if the nerves of her body were continually smouldering.
В лице, оттененном синим в горошек крепдешиновым платьем, не было ни одной красивой или хотя бы правильной черты, но от всего ее существа так и веяло энергией жизни, словно в каждой жилочке тлел готовый вспыхнуть огонь.

A mist of fine, drizzling rain enveloped the whole country, swallowing up every ray of light, every gleam of colour, and transforming everything into one smoky, leaden, indistinguishable mass.
Мелкий, тонкий дождь проницал всю окрестность, поглощая всякий отблеск и всякий оттенок и обращая всё в одну дымную, свинцовую, безразличную массу.

Yet a mild reflected brightness came from the snow, a milky gleam whose light became both landscape and human beings, even though these latter did show red noses under their white or gaily-coloured woollen caps.
Но от снега исходил отраженный мягкий блеск, какое-то молочное свеченье, придававшее особую красоту природе и людским лицам, хотя под белыми и цветными шапками носы и были красны от холода.

`Damn him, I wonder where he is!` said Ronald; and he moved the lantern up and down, and turned the night into a shifting puzzle- work of gleam and shadow.
— Черт его побери, где же он? — нетерпеливо сказал Рональд, поводя фонарем и тревожа ночную мглу причудливой игрой света и тени.

Alyosha gazed a long while with his eyes half closed at Rakitin, and there was a sudden gleam in his eyes...but not of anger with Rakitin.

When they did kindle, the listeners got some such insights into their past lives, as one gets into the darker parts of the woods, when a stray gleam of sunshine finds its way down to the roots of the trees.
Когда они начинали ссориться, слушателям удавалось порой заглянуть в их прошлое, как можно заглянуть в темные чащи леса, если заблудившийся солнечный луч пробьется к корням деревьев.

He went up and handed it to mother with a smile; she was looking at him with frightened perplexity, but she took the nosegay, and a faint flush at once glowed on her pale cheeks, and there was a gleam of pleasure in her eyes.
Он подошел и с улыбкой подал его маме; та было посмотрела с пугливым недоумением, но приняла букет, и вдруг краска слегка оживила ее бледные щеки, а в глазах сверкнула радость.

Not a cloud – nought but gradual disappearance, a disrobing which left behind it but a gleam of modesty on the horizon.
Ни облачка на этой девственной наготе отходящей ко сну богини, лишь одна полоска – точно краска стыда – на самом горизонте.
