Again he felt a familiarity -- as if this cautious walking, this solitary passage, belonged more to this world than the sleek bedroom in the other wing.
Он снова почуял что-то знакомое, словно эта ходьба крадучись, этот пустой коридор были куда приличнее, чем лощеная спальня в противоположном крыле дома.

The driver had taken his two sleek horses out; they grazed unchallenged; and he sat on a stone clapping time with his hands while the fiddler played.
Кучер распряг лошадей, и они мирно пасутся в стороне; сам он сидит на камне и хлопает в ладоши, отбивая такт, а скрипач все играет.
