Birds fluttered softly in the wet shrubbery; the swallows swooped past, with a steel-blue sheen on their swift little bodies; the grass felt springy beneath the feet, its green refreshed; butterflies chased each other.
Птицы возились и порхали в мокрых от дождя кустах; ласточки чертили круги — быстрые маленькие тельца, отливающие стальной синевой; трава под ногами скрипела упруго, красуясь освежённой зеленью; бабочки гонялись друг за дружкой.

A breeze sprung up with her motion, and blew through the garden; her flight was so swift that they could scarcely distinguish her figure aright.
По саду от нее разлетался ветер; она проносилась так быстро, что глаз уже не мог отчетливо рассмотреть ее.

His teeth clenched, grimly he stared down into the depths so sharply angled, so smooth in the promise of madly swift passage to the distant, steel-hard bottom.
Он сжал зубы и снова заглянул в туннель, где на дне стальной пушки готовился к старту гигантский снаряд.

Patroni had seen the gambit for what it was, an attempt to get him rattled, and ignored it until O'Hale landed two low blows near the groin in swift succession, which the referee, circling behind, did not observe.
Патрони прекрасно понимал, что это гамбит, попытка вывести его из себя, и пропускал оскорбления мимо ушей, пока О'Хейл вопреки правилам не ударил его дважды в низ живота, судья же, плясавший сзади них, не заметил этих ударов.

The strike was swift and measured. The damage inflicted was largely superficial and of no lasting consequence to an army of this size, so the Dwarves did not linger.
Нападение было стремительным и точно рассчитанным, однако нанесенный им урон не мог привести к серьезным последствиям для такой огромной армии, поэтому дворфы не стали задерживаться.

She leapt up--and I shall never forget the rapture, the bliss in her eyes, and suddenly it was succeeded by a swift rush of colour, and her eyes flashed.
Она вскочила - и никогда не забуду этого восторга, этого счастья в лице ее, и вдруг это всё сменилось быстрой краской, и глаза ее сверкнули.

And there were young girls, of eighteen and twenty, with trim bodies and faces yet untouched with twist and bloat, who had fetched the bottom of the Abyss plump, in one swift fall.
Но были и юные девушки, восемнадцати – двадцати лет, стройные, красивые, с лицами, еще не испорченными пороком и пьянством, эти, должно быть, внезапно и стремительно скатились в Бездну.

In two days she turned from the crispest, smartest, most swift-spoken woman in Fort Beulah into a silent hag, dragging about in shabby and unkempt black.
За два дня из изящной, нарядной и острой на язык женщины она превратилась в едва передвигающую ноги молчаливую старуху, одетую в потрепанное и неопрятное черное платье.

Reassurance that response to incidents will be swift and thorough-within the anticipated limitations of any defined response capability- is also desirable.
Также желательно, чтобы у них появилась уверенность, что реагирование на чрезвычайные ситуации будет незамедлительным и всесторонним - пусть даже предположительно ограниченным рамками того или иного потенциала противоаварийных возможностей.

She got up, put on her hat and gloves, threw a cape over her shoulders, and, slipping unnoticed out of the house, she went with swift steps along the road leading to Bersenyev's lodging.
встала, надела шляпу, перчатки, накинула мантилью на плечи и, незаметно выскользнув из дома, пошла проворными шагами по дороге, ведущей к квартире Берсенева.
