A choking smoke filled the air, and the five could scarce grope their way to the staircase which led up to the very summit of the square tower.
Воздух наполнился едким дымом, и пятеро смельчаков с трудом пробились к лестнице, которая вела на самый верх квадратной башни.

It was enough to see Big Tom grope up a worm-eaten panel from the floor and fit it back into place in the bolthole.

To grope down into the bottom of the sea after them; to have one's hands among the unspeakable foundations, ribs, and very pelvis of the world; this is a fearful thing.
Вслепую пробираться вслед за ними на дно морское; шарить руками в неизреченных основах, в плечевом и тазовом поясе самого мира - разве это не жутко?

His head is pressed upward against something hard while his hands sluggishly grope for a snagged body and find not even a protuberance where a body could snag.
Его выталкивает наверх, и он упирается головой во что-то твердое, а руки его, как в замедленной съемке, двигаются во все стороны в попытке нашарить застрявшее тело, но не нащупывают даже выступа, за который тут можно было бы зацепиться.

At first Dick, on his awakenings, would grope along the corridors of the chambers till he heard some one snore.
Сначала, пробудившись на заре, Дик ощупью пробирался по коридору, прислушиваясь, не храпят ли где-нибудь жильцы.

I started to grope for the meaning of the passage, but each questioning look which I threw at the professor was met by a shake of the head, a profound sigh, and an exclamation of "No, no!"
Кое-как я стал добираться до смысла, но профессор на каждый мой вопросительный взгляд качал головой и, вздыхая, отвечал только "нет".

You wake at night, open your eyes to blackness, and suddenly you feel you've lost your way—and quickly, quickly you grope around you, seeking something familiar, solid—a wall, a lamp, a chair.
Ночью вы проснулись, раскрыли глаза в черноту и вдруг чувствуете – заблудились, и скорее, скорее начинаете ощупывать кругом, искать что‑нибудь знакомое и твердое – стену, лампочку, стул.

“Speaking of which, how do we know which Superjumper to,” she groped for terminology, “cut out of the herd? It ought to be easier to get permission to come aboard if the crew’s someone Ti knows well.
А что до того, какой из супергрузовозов нам выбрать, — она подбирала слова, — то было бы легче попросить разрешения войти на борт там, где в команде есть кто-нибудь, кого хорошо знает Ти.

They walked on, sometimes stumbling over broken paving-stones, sometimes groping with their feet for kerbs that weren't there; for the plunging about of the searchlights, the sudden appearance and disappearance of shadows, was disorientating.
Они шли, спотыкаясь о развороченную брусчатку, нащупывая ногой несуществующие бордюры, – с толку сбивало мельканье теней от шарящих по небу прожекторов.
