To cock and poise his rifle were the acts of a single moment and a single motion: then aiming almost without sighting, he fired into the bushes where he knew a body ought to be, in order to sustain the appalling countenance which alone was visible.
В одно мгновение он поднял карабин, взвел курок и, почти не целясь, выстрелил в кусты, где, как он знал, должен был находиться индеец и откуда видна была лишь его страшная физиономия.

And afterwards she stepped lightly along the branches, scarcely using her hands to steady herself. She had all the agile nimbleness of a squirrel, and made her way onward, maintaining her equilibrium only by the swaying poise of her body.
А потом побежала по веткам, почти не касаясь сучьев руками. У нее были повадки легкой белочки; она огибала сбоку узловатые препятствия, спускала ноги вниз и временами удерживала равновесие только тем, что перегибала свой стан.

Dick, there's a sort of murderous, viperine suggestion in the poise of the head that I don't understand,' said Torpenhow.
— Но скажи мне на милость, Дик, в этом лице есть что-то жестокое, что-то змеиное в этом повороте головки, чего я никак не могу понять.

Out came Miss Loris's photo with the coffee, and I once more praised the elegant poise of the neck, the extremely low-coiled mass of heavy hair, and the eyes that followed one, like those in an oil painting.
За кофе появилась фотография мисс Лорис, и я в который раз воздал хвалу изящной, стройной шейке, тяжелому узлу необыкновенно густых волос и глазам, которые следят за тобой, словно с писанного маслом портрета.

With a scream, a huge roiling mass poured out of the darkness, a small wicked head poised to strike.
