It reached to his shoulders now, and seemed to him like a swarm of clinging arms that tried to bind his limbs and pull him down and drown him beneath an endless sea of greenery.
Теперь эта трава доходила ему до самых плеч; казалось, у нее были щупальца и она старалась связать его ими по рукам и ногам, потащить за собой, утопить в недрах беспредельного зеленого моря.

Thom did not appear to notice; he went right on in an ominously soft voice. They'd swarm over this inn like murderous ants on a rumor, a whisper.
Том этого, видно, не замечал, а продолжал зловеще- спокойным тоном: На молву, на один лишь слушок они поползут в эту гостиницу кровожадными муравьями.

They must know that you are coming, for they've formed into a swarm, although why they should swarm for the likes of you is more than I can understand."
Видимо, они знают, что вы идете, потому что собираются в рой, хотя зачем рой для таких как вы, – это выше моего понимания.

Catherine was poking a long straw into the hole so roughly, that a swarm of frightened ants had rushed out upon the floor.
Катрина с таким ожесточением шарила в ней длинной соломинкой, что, в конце концов, оттуда хлынула на плиты целая волна испуганных муравьев.

Mamillaria threw up living pustules, a crawling swarm of greenish tortoises, bristling hideously with long hairs that were stiffer than iron.
Бугристые кактусы нагромождали живучие прыщи, похожие на зеленоватых черепах со страшными длинными волосами, более жесткими, чем стальные иглы.

I know it appears that a swarm of hungry ants has been feasting on his spirit; but let great beauty be placed before him, let the Red Saint be mirrored in those eyes, and you shall see and remember what I say.
Я знаю, может показаться, будто сотни голодных муравьев изгрызли его мужество, но дайте ему узреть великую красоту, пусть в этих глазах отразится Красная Святая, и вы увидите… вы вспомните мои слова.
