The noise came closer, the sound of wheels, the plod of a horse’s hooves and voices.
Шум приближался — скрип колес, стук копыт, голоса.

Her call is low, but the shadowy figure plodding up the lawn- yes, that's a plod, all right, not a walk but a plod—raises its head just as Lisey's curiously numb fingers find the light-switch and flick it.
Имя она произносит тихо, но человек‑тень, который бредёт через лужайку (да, именно бредёт, всё так, не идёт, а бредёт), поднимает голову в тот самый момент, когда странным образом онемевшие пальцы Лизи находят выключатель и щёлкают им.

Somehow he managed to pull himself together and plod along behind me—away from the office, which was still being stormed, away from two comrades, one dead and one dying.
Он все-таки сумел собраться. Потащился вслед за мной – от офиса, который еще штурмовали, от двух товарищей – мертвого и умирающего.

It was with a very melancholy laugh that Newman Noggs concluded this soliloquy; and it was with a very melancholy shake of the head, and a very rueful countenance, that he turned about, and went plodding on his way.
Очень меланхолический был смех, которым Ньюмен Ногс закончил свой монолог; и, очень меланхолически покачивая головой и с очень унылой физиономией, он повернулся и побрел своей дорогой.

It scrambled steeply up, and they plodded slowly one behind the other, till at last in the late afternoon they came to the top of the ridge and saw the wintry sun going downwards to the West.

Beyond the aristocratic turf, through the wrought-iron main gates they could see the plebeian procession, those whom the buses wouldn't hold, plodding up the down, kicking up the dust, eating buns out of paper bags.
За аристократической лужайкой через железную решетку главных ворот они могли видеть процессию плебеев, тех, кого не вмещали автобусы: люди взбирались на меловые холмы, поднимая пыль, ели булочки с изюмом, которые вынимали из бумажных кульков.

What worried her, however, was that he was not very open to new ideas, and after the long, everlasting plodding for a career, was unmistakably beginning to feel the need of repose.
Но всё-таки ее беспокоило, что он как-то уж очень мало восприимчив, и после долгого, вечного искания карьеры, решительно начинал ощущать потребность покоя.
