And finally mere was a tremendous baying of dogs and a shrill crowing from me black cockerel, and out came Napoleon himself, majestically upright, casting haughty glances from side to side, and with his dogs gambolling round him.
И наконец раздался собачий лай и торжественное кукареканье черного петуха, что оповестило о появлении самого Наполеона. Надменно глядя по сторонам, он величественно прошел через двор в окружении собак.

It was the other one who replied this time, in that voice — harsh, cawing, laughing, triumphant, and hateful — that was even worse than the shrill laughter of the birdy-women.
На этот раз ей ответила другая, голосом — грубым, лающим, насмешливым, торжествующим, сочащемся ненавистью — более неприятным, чем пронзительный смех птицеженщин.

Их пронзительный, четкий и тонкий крик падал, как нити шелкового света, разматывающиеся с жужжащего веретена.

It is as though some one had uttered a long, long cry upon the very horizon, as though some other had answered him with shrill harsh laughter in the forest, and a faint, hoarse hissing hovers over the river.
Казалось, кто-то долго, долго прокричал под самым небосклоном, кто-то другой как будто отозвался ему в лесу тонким, острым хохотом, и слабый, шипящий свист промчался по реке.
