Time had no meaning to him now as he fell deeply into the trance of his work, but when he had completed the runes, he noticed that the moon had passed its peak and was on the wane.
Время утратило свой смысл, Бренор с головой ушел в работу и, наконец закончив покрывать поверхность молота рунами, поднял голову и увидел, что в своем движении по небу луна уже миновала вершину пути и плавно скользит вниз.

A few months ago the influence of Walter Pater had begun to wane: the little, crowded stage of Renaissance Italy was losing its charm—if so mild a word could be applied to that microcosm of intrigues and assassinations.
Совсем недавно он почти освободился от влияния Уолтера Пейтера: маленькая, но весьма плотно набитая персонажами сцена Италии эпохи Возрождения потеряла свое очарование – если такое милое слово было применимо к этому микрокосмосу интриг и убийств.

Похожее на рептилию существо, хлопая крыльями, которые больше подошли бы гигантскому мотыльку, неровными зигзагами устремилось к угасавшему свету дня.

But strange things are prepared even in the dead of night, and the unusual, which lurks least in the cafe, home of the prosaic and inevitable, was preparing to spoil for him the waning romance of Broadway.
Но странные вещи рождаются и в ночное время, и Необычное, которому, казалось бы, нет места в кафе, этих пристанищах всего прозаического и банального, уже готовилось убить в глазах Эмори всю романтику Бродвея.

Afar off through the long vista of the colonnades were glimpses of waning sunlight, showing like a procession of white-robed maidens entering church for a betrothal ceremony amid the low strains of an organ.
Вдали, в колоннады врывались лучи заходящего солнца: они походили на процессию юных дев, одетых в белые платья и входящих под глухое гуденье органа в церковь для совершения свадебного обряда.

An awe that cannot be named would steal over you as you sat by the side of this waning savage, and saw as strange things in his face, as any beheld who were bystanders when Zoroaster died.
Неизъяснимый ужас охватывал вас, когда вы сидели подле этого угасающего дикаря и видели в лице его что-то странное, замеченное еще свидетелями смерти Зороастра.
