Examples from texts

But, unlike the noble bird from whom he has derived his name, he does not swoop down openly and boldly upon it; quite the contrary; the 'eagle' has recourse to deceit and cunning.
Но, в противность благородной птице, от которой он получил свое имя, он не нападает открыто и смело: напротив, «орел» прибегает к хитрости и лукавству.

Thou," he continued with ringing scorn, "thou the inspirer of a hundred glorious fights in which whole fleets have been engaged, to take the seas upon so trivial an errand-one galeasse to swoop upon a single galley of Spain!
Чтобы ты — герой сотен славных сражений, в которых принимали участие целые флотилии, — вышел в море ради ничтожной стычки одного галеаса с какой-то испанской галерой!

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.

But at this moment the renowned lady-killer Monsieur Verdier swooped down upon her, and began to fall into ecstasies over the color, feuille morte, of her gown and the low-crowned Spanish hat she wore tilted almost down to her eyebrows. . . .
