Suddenly a white dove flew straight into the bright light, fluttered round and round in terror, bathed in the red glow, and disappeared with a whirr of its wings.
Вдруг откуда ни возьмись белый голубок, – налетел прямо в это отражение, пугливо повертелся на одном месте, весь обливаясь горячим блеском, и исчез, звеня крылами.

Whirr came the wheels --the carriage stopped at the very door: there was a parley at the gate: then appeared Mrs. Betty, with a face radiant with joy, though her eyes were full of tears; and next, who is that tall young gentleman who enters?
Стук стал громче и смолк - экипаж остановился перед домом, начались переговоры у ворот, а затем в комнату вошла миссис Бетти с сияющим лицом, хотя ее глаза были полны слез, а за ней... Кто этот высокий юноша?

These were heliotropic engines, Bellis supposed, their paddles and blades whirring in the hard sunlight, their cracked glass housings sucking it up, sending arcane energies down the wires that linked random houses.
Наверное, гелиотропные двигатели, подумала Беллис. Их лопатки и лопасти стрекотали на немилосердном солнце, потрескавшиеся стеклянные корпуса засасывали в себя его лучи и посылали загадочную энергию по проводам, связывавшим разбросанные повсюду дома.

The clock, in its wooden case, made a whirring noise, as though it were some consumptive trying to clear his throat, and then huskily struck half-past six.
Часы в деревянном футляре сперва, словно прочищая горло, издали глухой грудной кашель, а потом глухо пробили половину седьмого.

Then the world would rush back: the room, the walls, the peaceful myriad sound of in sects from beyond the summer windows where insects had whirred for forty years.
И тогда возвращался прежний мир: комната, стены, мирный, несметный хор насекомых за летними окнами, где насекомые гудели уже сорок лет.

The picture was a nightmare, condensed, easily passed from hand to hand, in the forest, all whirring colour and flight.
На экранчике замелькали краски, с жужжанием заметались тени, словно в этом маленьком ящичке был заперт какой-то кошмарный сон, и странно было, что здесь, в лесу, можно взять его в руки, передать другому.
