He looked down at the circle of vans and campers and the twinkle of the fire. A ghost of some old song came to him: She danced around the fire to a Gypsy melody/Sweet young woman in motion, how she enchanted me ...
Посмотрел на круг машин у костра и вдруг в голове возникли слова некогда популярной песни о том, как цыганка танцевала у костра, как она была прекрасна и очаровывала.

But she paid him no attention, running like the wind, her ancient body wobbling on her shaky legs that seemed to twinkle with her speed even as she wobbled.
Но она не обращала на него внимания, неслась, как ветер. Ее старое тело раскачивалось на дрожащих ногах, и это раскачивание, казалось, удваивало ее скорость.

`Faith, nor me either!` said I; and I lowered my stick and considered the man, not without a twinkle of admiration.

They all looked, and a longish way off, it seemed, they saw a red twinkle in the dark; then another and another sprang out beside it.
Они остановились и стали всматриваться. И в самом деле: вдали мелькнул красный огонек, потом еще и еще.

Grey, or rather yellow light, was beginning to twinkle through the fogs of Whitefriars, when a low tap at the door of the unhappy miser announced to Lord Glenvarloch the summons of the boatman.
Сквозь густой туман, окутывавший Уайтфрайерс, начал пробиваться сероватый, или, скорее, серовато-желтый, свет, когда тихий стук в дверь дома несчастного ростовщика дал знать лорду Гленварлоху о приходе лодочника.

Lucas was a lot older than he looked; something in the hooded twinkle of his eyes and the almost-slack set of his mouth made that age visible.
Лукас казался гораздо старше своих лет — его старили потухшие глаза и безвольно опущенные уголки рта.
