Мы следили и за падучими звездами, как они чертят небо и летят вниз.

Belsar was sinking behind the trees to the west; the far wall of the canyon was a hazy pink above a streak of silver; below them the rough, tumbled floor of the canyon would give them lots of cover, if they could only reach it.
Бельсар опускался за деревья на западе; противоположная стена каньона окрасилась розовым с серебряными прожилками. Укрыться можно было внизу на загроможденном камнями дне каньона, если, конечно, туда удастся добраться.

Of course I knew he had a yellow streak in him; I never would have dared hit him upside the head with that cream-pitcher in the first place if I hadn't felt I had a pretty good chance of comm out on top.
Конечно же, я знала об этой черте его характера; иначе я никогда не осмелилась бы ударить его по голове кувшином, если бы не чувствовала, что смогу одержать верх.

There was a waterfall near us, such a lovely thin streak of water, like a thread but white and moving. It fell from a great height, but it looked quite low, and it was half a mile away, though it did not seem fifty paces.
У нас там водопад был, небольшой, высоко с горы падал и такою тонкою ниткой, почти перпендикулярно, - белый, шумливый, пенистый; падал высоко, а казалось, довольно низко, был в полверсте, а казалось, что до него пятьдесят шагов.

Looking up, they could still see the pale streak of crystal above them, the glass band, water-pale, under the sunset colored pastel of the sandstone just above it.
Закинув головы, они разглядывали кристаллические и стекловидные прожилки, бледно-водянистые, пастельные в лучах солнца.

His long-term analysis may be brilliant, but the market will do him in, because he does not have the staying power to ride out a losing streak.
Его долгосрочный анализ может быть верен, но рынок потопит его, потому что у него нет запаса прочности, чтобы выжить в период неудач.

Behind it would be seated Mimi, shaking her head in an irritable manner, and constantly shifting from spot to spot to avoid the sunshine as at intervals it darted her from somewhere and laid a streak of flame upon her hand or face.
За пяльцами сидит Мими, беспрестанно сердито встряхивая головой и передвигаясь с места на место от солнца, которое, вдруг прорвавшись где-нибудь, проломит ей то там, то сям на лице или на руке огненную полосу.
