Examples from texts

So trenchant was the Templar's weapon, that it shore asunder, as it had been a willow twig, the tough and plaited handle of the mace, which the ill-fated Saxon reared to parry the blow, and, descending on his head, levelled him with the earth.
Напрасно Ательстан попытался парировать удар своей окованной железом палицей. Острый меч храмовника разрубил ее, как тростинку, и обрушился на голову злополучного сакса, который замертво упал на землю.

With every step he grew more light-hearted, more happy; he walked in the dewy shade in the thick sand of the little paths, beside the fir-trees that were fringed with the vivid green of the spring shoots at the end of every twig.
С каждым шагом ему становилось все привольней, все веселей: он шел в росистой тени, по крупному песку дорожек, вдоль елок, по всем концам ветвей окаймленных яркою зеленью весенних отпрысков.
