8. The Deadly Poppy Field

(Смертельное маковое поле)

К оглавлению

Our little party of travelers awakened the next morning refreshed and full of hope (наша небольшая компания путешественников проснулась на следующее утро отдохнувшей и полной надежд; to refresh — освежать, подкреплять), and Dorothy breakfasted like a princess off peaches and plums (и Дороти позавтракала, как принцесса, персиками и сливами) from the trees beside the river (/собранными/ с деревьев, /что росли/ у реки; beside — рядом, около, близ).

Behind them was the dark forest they had passed safely through (позади них /остался/ темный лес, который они благополучно миновали), although they had suffered many discouragements (хотя они и встретили множество препятствий; to suffer — страдать, испытывать; discouragement — разочарование, обескураживание; препятствие, затруднение); but before them was a lovely, sunny country (и перед ними /лежала/ прекрасная, залитая солнцем страна; sun — солнце; sunny — солнечный, освещенный солнцем) that seemed to beckon them on to the Emerald City (которая, казалось, манила их в Изумрудный город; beckon — кивок, манящий жест; to beckon — манить, кивать; делать знак /рукой, пальцем/).

Our little party of travelers awakened the next morning refreshed and full of hope, and Dorothy breakfasted like a princess off peaches and plums from the trees beside the river.

Behind them was the dark forest they had passed safely through, although they had suffered many discouragements; but before them was a lovely, sunny country that seemed to beckon them on to the Emerald City.


To be sure, the broad river now cut them off from this beautiful land (конечно же, теперь их отделяла: «отрезала» широкая река от этой прекрасной страны). But the raft was nearly done (но плот был почти готов: «сделан»), and after the Tin Woodman had cut a few more logs and fastened them together with wooden pins (и, после того как Железный Дровосек разрубил еще несколько бревен и скрепил их между собой деревянными штифтами; log — бревно, колода, чурбан; pin — булавка, шпилька; тех . пробойник, палец, штифт; together — вместе, совместно; воедино, слитно), they were ready to start (они были готовы отправиться в путь). Dorothy sat down in the middle of the raft and held Toto in her arms (Дороти села посередине плота, держа Тото на руках; to hold). When the Cowardly Lion stepped upon the raft it tipped badly (когда Трусливый Лев вступил на плот, тот сильно наклонился), for he was big and heavy (потому чтоон был большой и тяжелый); but the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman stood upon the other end to steady it (но Страшила и Железный Дровосек встали на другом конце /плота/, чтобы придать ему устойчивости; steady — устойчивый; прочный; to steady — делать прочным; придавать устойчивость), and they had long poles in their hands to push the raft through the water (и у них в руках были длинные шесты, чтобы толкать плот по воде; pole — столб, шест, жердь; багор).

To be sure, the broad river now cut them off from this beautiful land. But the raft was nearly done, and after the Tin Woodman had cut a few more logs and fastened them together with wooden pins, they were ready to start. Dorothy sat down in the middle of the raft and held Toto in her arms. When the Cowardly Lion stepped upon the raft it tipped badly, for he was big and heavy; but the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman stood upon the other end to steady it, and they had long poles in their hands to push the raft through the water.


They got along quite well at first (поначалу они продвигались довольно хорошо), but when they reached the middle of the river (но, когда они достигли середины реки) the swift current swept the raft downstream (быстрое течение стало сносить плот вниз по течению; to sweep — мести, подметать; сметать, сносить), farther and farther away from the road of yellow brick (все дальше и дальше от дороги из желтого кирпича). And the water grew so deep (и река стала такой глубокой) that the long poles would not touch the bottom (что длинные шесты не касались дна = не доставали до дна).

"This is bad (это плохо)," said the Tin Woodman, "for if we cannot get to the land (ведь если мы не сможем добраться до земли) we shall be carried into the country of the Wicked Witch of the West (нас унесет в страну Злой Ведьмы Запада), and she will enchant us and make us her slaves (и она околдует нас и сделает нас своими рабами; to enchant — очаровывать, околдовывать, опутывать чарами)."

"And then I should get no brains (и тогда я не получу мозги)," said the Scarecrow.

"And I should get no courage (и я не получу храбрость)," said the Cowardly Lion.

"And I should get no heart (и я не получу сердце)," said the Tin Woodman.

"And I should never get back to Kansas (и я никогда не вернусь в Канзас)," said Dorothy.


quite [kwaIt], current ['kArqnt], downstream ["daun'stri:m], touch [tAtS], bottom ['bOtqm], enchant [In'tSQ:nt]


They got along quite well at first, but when they reached the middle of the river the swift current swept the raft downstream, farther and farther away from the road of yellow brick. And the water grew so deep that the long poles would not touch the bottom.

"This is bad," said the Tin Woodman, "for if we cannot get to the land we shall be carried into the country of the Wicked Witch of the West, and she will enchant us and make us her slaves."

"And then I should get no brains," said the Scarecrow.

"And I should get no courage," said the Cowardly Lion.

"And I should get no heart," said the Tin Woodman.

"And I should never get back to Kansas," said Dorothy.


"We must certainly get to the Emerald City if we can (мы обязательно должны добраться до Изумрудного Города, если сможем)," the Scarecrow continued (продолжил Страшила), and he pushed so hard on his long pole (и так сильно толкнул своим длинным шестом) that it stuck fast in the mud at the bottom of the river (что тот крепко застрял в тине на дне реки; mud — грязь, слякоть; ил, тина; to stick — втыкать; торчать; завязнуть, застрять). Then, before he could pull it out again (затем, прежде чем он смог снова его вытащить) — or let go (или отпустить) — the raft was swept away (плот был унесен /течением дальше/; to sweep — мести, сметать; to sweep away — уносить /о ветре, воде/), and the poor Scarecrow left clinging to the pole in the middle of the river (и бедняга Страшила остался, уцепившись за шест, посреди реки; to cling — цепляться; крепко держаться).

"Good-bye (прощайте)!" he called after them (крикнул он им вслед), and they were very sorry to leave him (и им было очень жаль оставлять его = расстаться с ним; sorry — огорченный, сожалеющий, полный сожаления).

Indeed, the Tin Woodman began to cry (в самом деле, Железный Дровосек начал плакать), but fortunately remembered that he might rust (но, к счастью, вспомнил, что он может заржаветь), and so dried his tears on Dorothy's apron (и поэтому вытер слезы о передник Дороти).


continue [kqn'tInju:], fortunately ['fO:tS(q)nqtlI], might [maIt], apron ['eIprqn]


"We must certainly get to the Emerald City if we can," the Scarecrow continued, and he pushed so hard on his long pole that it stuck fast in the mud at the bottom of the river. Then, before he could pull it out again — or let go — the raft was swept away, and the poor Scarecrow left clinging to the pole in the middle of the river.

"Good-bye!" he called after them, and they were very sorry to leave him.

Indeed, the Tin Woodman began to cry, but fortunately remembered that he might rust, and so dried his tears on Dorothy's apron.


Of course this was a bad thing for the Scarecrow (конечно же, для Страшилы дело было плохо; thing — вещь, предмет; дело, обстоятельство, положение дел; bad thing — плохо дело).

"I am now worse off than when I first met Dorothy (я теперь в худшем положении, чем когда я впервые встретил Дороти)," he thought (думал он). "Then, I was stuck on a pole in a cornfield (тогда я был насажен на шест на кукурузном поле), where I could make-believe scare the crows, at any rate (где я мог, по крайней мере, делать вид, что пугаю ворон; make — believe — притворство; to make — believe — делать вид, притворяться). But surely there is no use for a Scarecrow stuck on a pole in the middle of a river (но уж, конечно, нет прока от пугала, торчащего на шесте посредине реки; use — употребление, применение; польза, толк). I am afraid I shall never have any brains, after all (боюсь, что, в конце концов, у меня так никогда и не будет мозгов)!"

Down the stream the raft floated (плот плыл вниз по реке), and the poor Scarecrow was left far behind (и бедняга Страшила остался: «был оставлен» далеко позади; to leave — оставлять, покидать).


worse [wq:s], first [fq:st], make believe ["meIkbI'li:v], float [flqut], behind [bI'haInd]


Of course this was a bad thing for the Scarecrow.

"I am now worse off than when I first met Dorothy," he thought. "Then, I was stuck on a pole in a cornfield, where I could make-believe scare the crows, at any rate. But surely there is no use for a Scarecrow stuck on a pole in the middle of a river. I am afraid I shall never have any brains, after all!" Down the stream the raft floated, and the poor Scarecrow was left far behind.


Then the Lion said (тогда Лев сказал): "Something must be done to save us (что-то должно быть сделано = нужно сделать, чтобы спасти нас). I think I can swim to the shore and pull the raft after me (мне кажется, что я могу поплыть к берегу и потянуть плот за собой), if you will only hold fast to the tip of my tail (если только вы будете крепко держаться за кончик моего хвоста)."

So he sprang into the water (тогда он прыгнул в воду), and the Tin Woodman caught fast hold of his tail (и Железный Дровосек крепко ухватился за его хвост). Then the Lion began to swim with all his might toward the shore (тогда Лев начал изо всех сил плыть к берегу). It was hard work, although he was so big (это была тяжелая работа, хотя он был таким большим; hard — твердый; трудный, тяжелый, требующий напряжения); but by and by they were drawn out of the current (но вскоре они были вытянуты из течения), and then Dorothy took the Tin Woodman's long pole and helped push the raft to the land (и тогда Дороти взяла длинный шест Железного Дровосека и стала помогать толкать плот к берегу).

Then the Lion said: "Something must be done to save us. I think I can swim to the shore and pull the raft after me, if you will only hold fast to the tip of my tail." So he sprang into the water, and the Tin Woodman caught fast hold of his tail. Then the Lion began to swim with all his might toward the shore. It was hard work, although he was so big; but by and by they were drawn out of the current, and then Dorothy took the Tin Woodman's long pole and helped push the raft to the land.


They were all tired out when they reached the shore at last (все они были совершенно измучены, когда они наконец-то достигли берега; tired — усталый, утомленный, уморившийся) and stepped off upon the pretty green grass (и ступили на прелестную зеленую траву), and they also knew that the stream had carried them a long way past the road of yellow brick that led to the Emerald City (и они так же знали, что поток унес их далеко от дороги из желтого кирпича, которая вела в Изумрудный Город).

"What shall we do now (что же нам теперь делать)?" asked the Tin Woodman (спросил Железный Дровосек), as the Lion lay down on the grass to let the sun dry him (пока Лев улегся на траву, чтобы солнышко высушило его; to let smb. do smth. — разрешить, позволить кому — либо сделать что — либо).

"We must get back to the road, in some way (мы должны вернуться к дороге, так или иначе: «каким-нибудь способом»)," said Dorothy.

"The best plan will be to walk along the riverbank (самым лучшим будет идти вдоль берега реки; plan — план, программа действий; способ действий; the best plan would be … — самое лучшее будет) until we come to the road again (пока мы снова не придем к дороге)," remarked the Lion (заметил Лев).


reach [ri:tS], pretty ['prItI], river-bank ['rIvqbxNk]


They were all tired out when they reached the shore at last and stepped off upon the pretty green grass, and they also knew that the stream had carried them a long way past the road of yellow brick that led to the Emerald City.

"What shall we do now?" asked the Tin Woodman, as the Lion lay down on the grass to let the sun dry him.

"We must get back to the road, in some way," said Dorothy.

"The best plan will be to walk along the riverbank until we come to the road again," remarked the Lion.


So, when they were rested, Dorothy picked up her basket (итак, когда они отдохнули, Дороти взяла свою корзину) and they started along the grassy bank (и они отправились в путь по поросшему травой берегу; grass — трава), to the road from which the river had carried them (к дороге, от которой отнесла их река). It was a lovely country (это была прелестная страна), with plenty of flowers and fruit trees and sunshine to cheer them (с множеством цветов и плодовых деревьев, которые поднимали им настроение; cheer — одобрительное восклицание; ободрение, поддержка; to cheer — аплодировать; ободрять, поддерживать, утешать), and had they not felt so sorry for the poor Scarecrow (и, если бы они не сожалели так о бедном Страшиле; to feel — чувствовать; sorry — огорченный, сожалеющий), they could have been very happy (они могли бы быть очень счастливыми).

They walked along as fast as they could (они шли так быстро, как только могли), Dorothy only stopping once to pick a beautiful flower (Дороти остановилась только один раз, чтобы сорвать красивый цветок; to pick — собирать, снимать / плоды /, рвать, срывать / цветы, фрукты /); and after a time the Tin Woodman cried out (и, спустя какое-то время, Железный Дровосек крикнул): "Look (глядите)!" Then they all looked at the river (тогда все они посмотрели на реку) and saw the Scarecrow perched upon his pole in the middle of the water (и увидели Страшилу, торчащего на шесте посередине реки), looking very lonely and sad (который выглядел очень одиноким и грустным).

So, when they were rested, Dorothy picked up her basket and they started along the grassy bank, to the road from which the river had carried them. It was a lovely country, with plenty of flowers and fruit trees and sunshine to cheer them, and had they not felt so sorry for the poor Scarecrow, they could have been very happy.

They walked along as fast as they could, Dorothy only stopping once to pick a beautiful flower; and after a time the Tin Woodman cried out: "Look!" Then they all looked at the river and saw the Scarecrow perched upon his pole in the middle of the water, looking very lonely and sad.


"What can we do to save him (что мы можем сделать, чтобы спасти его)?" asked Dorothy.

The Lion and the Woodman both shook their heads (Лев и Дровосек оба покачали головами), for they did not know (потому что они не знали, /что делать/). So they sat down upon the bank and gazed wistfully at the Scarecrow (поэтому они уселись на берегу и стали /пристально/ смотреть, с тоской, на Страшилу) until a Stork flew by (пока мимо не пролетел Аист), who, upon seeing them, stopped to rest at the water's edge (который, завидев их, остановился отдохнуть у края воды = на берегу реки).

"Who are you and where are you going (кто вы такие и куда вы направляетесь)?" asked the Stork.

"I am Dorothy (я — Дороти)," answered the girl (ответила девочка), "and these are my friends, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion (а это — мои друзья, Железный Дровосек и Трусливый Лев); and we are going to the Emerald City (и мы идем в Изумрудный Город)."

"This isn't the road (/но/ это не та дорога)," said the Stork, as she twisted her long neck and looked sharply at the queer party (вращая своей длинной шеей и внимательно разглядывая странную компанию; to twist — крутить, скручивать; вращать, вертеть; sharply — резко; внимательно; sharp — острый).


gaze [geIz], wistfully ['wIstfulI], edge [edZ]


"What can we do to save him?" asked Dorothy.

The Lion and the Woodman both shook their heads, for they did not know. So they sat down upon the bank and gazed wistfully at the Scarecrow until a Stork flew by, who, upon seeing them, stopped to rest at the water's edge.

"Who are you and where are you going?" asked the Stork.

"I am Dorothy," answered the girl, "and these are my friends, the Tin Woodman and the Cowardly Lion; and we are going to the Emerald City."

"This isn't the road," said the Stork, as she twisted her long neck and looked sharply at the queer party.


"I know it (я знаю это)," returned Dorothy, "but we have lost the Scarecrow (но мы потеряли Страшилу), and are wondering how we shall get him again (и теперь раздумываем, как же нам вернуть его)."

"Where is he (а где он)?" asked the Stork.

"Over there in the river (вон там, на реке)," answered the little girl (ответила маленькая девочка).

"If he wasn't so big and heavy (если бы он не был таким большим и тяжелым) I would get him for you (то я бы принес его для вас)," remarked the Stork (заметил Аист).

"He isn't heavy a bit (он вовсе не тяжелый; not a bit — ничуть, нисколько)," said Dorothy eagerly (горячо сказала Дороти), "for he is stuffed with straw (ведь он набит соломой); and if you will bring him back to us (и если вы принесете его обратно к нам), we shall thank you ever and ever so much (мы будем беспрестанно благодарить вас: «всегда и всегда так много»)."


wondering ['wAnd(q)rIN], stork [stO:k], eagerly ['i:gqlI]


"I know it," returned Dorothy, "but we have lost the Scarecrow, and are wondering how we shall get him again."

"Where is he?" asked the Stork.

"Over there in the river," answered the little girl.

"If he wasn't so big and heavy I would get him for you," remarked the Stork.

"He isn't heavy a bit," said Dorothy eagerly, "for he is stuffed with straw; and if you will bring him back to us, we shall thank you ever and ever so much."


"Well, I'll try (что ж, я попробую)," said the Stork, "but if I find he is too heavy to carry (но если я сочту, что он слишком тяжелый, чтобы нести его) I shall have to drop him in the river again (мне придется снова бросить его в реку; to drop — капать; падать; ронять; бросать /вниз/)."

So the big bird flew into the air and over the water (тогда большая птица взлетела в небо и /полетела/ над водой; air — воздух, атмосфера) till she came to where the Scarecrow was perched upon his pole (пока не долетела: «не добралась» до того места, где Страшила торчал на шесте; perch — веха, жердь, шест; насест, жердочка /для птиц/; perched — помещенный высоко). Then the Stork with her great claws grabbed the Scarecrow by the arm (затем Аист схватил своими огромными когтями Страшилу за руку; to grab — внезапно схватывать, хватать) and carried him up into the air and back to the bank (и поднял его в воздух и отнес его назад, к берегу), where Dorothy and the Lion and the Tin Woodman and Toto were sitting (где сидели Дороти и Лев, и Железный Дровосек, и Тото).

When the Scarecrow found himself among his friends again (когда Страшила снова очутился среди своих друзей; to find oneself somewhere — оказаться, очутиться где — либо), he was so happy that he hugged them all, even the Lion and Toto (он был настолько счастлив, что сжал в объятиях их всех, даже Льва и Тото; hug — крепкое объятие; to hug — крепко обнимать, сжимать в объятиях); and as they walked along he sang "Tol-de-ri-de-oh!" at every step (и когда они зашагали /по дороге/ он распевал "Тол-де-ри-де-о!" на каждом шагу), he felt so gay (таким веселым он /себя/ чувствовал).

"Well, I'll try," said the Stork, "but if I find he is too heavy to carry I shall have to drop him in the river again." So the big bird flew into the air and over the water till she came to where the Scarecrow was perched upon his pole. Then the Stork with her great claws grabbed the Scarecrow by the arm and carried him up into the air and back to the bank, where Dorothy and the Lion and the Tin Woodman and Toto were sitting.

When the Scarecrow found himself among his friends again, he was so happy that he hugged them all, even the Lion and Toto; and as they walked along he sang "Tol-de-ri-de-oh!" at every step, he felt so gay.


"I was afraid I should have to stay in the river forever (я боялся, что мне придется /остаться/ стоять на реке навсегда)," he said, "but the kind Stork saved me (но добрый Аист спас меня), and if I ever get any brains (и если я когда-нибудь получу мозги) I shall find the Stork again and do her some kindness in return (я отыщу этого Аиста и сделаю ему какое-нибудь доброе дело в ответ; return — возращение; отдача, возврат)."

"That's all right (все в порядке = не стоит благодарности)," said the Stork, who was flying along beside them (сказал Аист, который летел рядом с ними). "I always like to help anyone in trouble (мне всегда нравится помогать кому-нибудь /попавшему/ в беду; trouble — беспокойстве, волнение; неприятность, беда; to be in trouble — быть в беде). But I must go now (но теперь я должен лететь), for my babies are waiting in the nest for me (так как мои птенцы ожидают меня в гнезде; baby — младенец, ребенок, дитя). I hope you will find the Emerald City and that Oz will help you (надеюсь, что вы найдете Изумрудный Город и что Оз поможет вам)."

"Thank you," replied Dorothy (ответила Дороти), and then the kind Stork flew into the air and was soon out of sight (и затем добрый Аист взвился в небо и вскоре исчез из вида; sight — зрение; поле зрения, предел видимости).

"I was afraid I should have to stay in the river forever," he said, "but the kind Stork saved me, and if I ever get any brains I shall find the Stork again and do her some kindness in return."

"That's all right," said the Stork, who was flying along beside them. "I always like to help anyone in trouble. But I must go now, for my babies are waiting in the nest for me. I hope you will find the Emerald City and that Oz will help you."

"Thank you," replied Dorothy, and then the kind Stork flew into the air and was soon out of sight.


They walked along listening to the singing of the brightly colored birds (они шагали /по дороге/, слушая пение ярко окрашенных птиц = птиц с ярким оперением) and looking at the lovely flowers (и любуясь красивыми цветами; to look — смотреть, глядеть) which now became so thick that the ground was carpeted with them (которые теперь стали такими густыми = росли так густо, что земля была покрыта ими, как ковром; carpet — ковер; to carpet — устилать коврами). There were big yellow and white and blue and purple blossoms (там росли большие желтые, и белые, и пурпурные цветы; blossom — цвет, цветение; цветок), besides great clusters of scarlet poppies (наряду с большими скоплениями алых маков; cluster — кисть, пучок, гроздь, куст), which were so brilliant in color they almost dazzled Dorothy's eyes (которые были такого блистающего цвета, что они почти слепили глаза Дороти; brilliant — бриллиант; brilliant — блестящий, сверкающий; dazzle — ослепление; ослепительный блеск; to dazzle — слепить, ослеплять).

"Aren't they beautiful (/ну/ разве они не красивы)?" the girl asked (спросила девочка), as she breathed in the spicy scent of the bright flowers (вдохнув пряный аромат ярких цветов; spice — специя, пряность; острый запах, пряный аромат; spicy — приправленный специями; пряный, ароматный).

"I suppose so (полагаю так = думаю, да)," answered the Scarecrow. "When I have brains (когда у меня будут мозги), I shall probably like them better (возможно, они мне будут нравиться больше)."

"If I only had a heart, I should love them (если бы у меня только было сердце, то они бы нравились мне больше; love — любовь; to love — любить; любить /что-либо/, находить удовольствие /в чем-либо/)," added the Tin Woodman (добавил Железный Дровосек).

They walked along listening to the singing of the brightly colored birds and looking at the lovely flowers which now became so thick that the ground was carpeted with them. There were big yellow and white and blue and purple blossoms, besides great clusters of scarlet poppies, which were so brilliant in color they almost dazzled Dorothy's eyes.

"Aren't they beautiful?" the girl asked, as she breathed in the spicy scent of the bright flowers.

"I suppose so," answered the Scarecrow. "When I have brains, I shall probably like them better."

"If I only had a heart, I should love them," added the Tin Woodman.


"I always did like flowers (мне всегда действительно нравились цветы)," said the Lion. "They often seem so helpless and frail (часто они кажутся такими беспомощными и хрупкими; help — помощь). But there are none in the forest so bright as these (но ни одни /цветы/ в лесу не такие яркие, как эти = но в лесу нет таких ярких цветов, как эти)."

They now came upon more and more of the big scarlet poppies (теперь они встречали все больше и больше этих крупных алых маков; to come upon — натолкнуться на что -либо, неожиданно найти что -либо, случайно встретить кого -либо), and fewer and fewer of the other flowers (и все меньше и меньше других цветов); and soon they found themselves in the midst of a great meadow of poppies (и вскоре они оказались посреди огромного луга из маков). Now it is well known that when there are many of these flowers together (а ведь хорошо известно, что когда множество этих цветов /растет/ вместе = в одном месте) their odor is so powerful that anyone who breathes it falls asleep (аромат у них такой мощный, что всякий, кто вдыхает его, засыпает), and if the sleeper is not carried away from the scent of the flowers (и, если спящего не унести от аромата цветов), he sleeps on and on forever (то он будет продолжать спать вечно). But Dorothy did not know this (но Дороти не знала этого), nor could she get away from the bright red flowers that were everywhere about (не могла она и оторваться от ярких красных цветов, что росли повсюду вокруг); so presently her eyes grew heavy (так что вскоре глаза ее стали тяжелыми) and she felt she must sit down to rest and to sleep (и она почувствовала, что она должна присесть, чтобы отдохнуть и поспать).

"I always did like flowers," said the Lion. "They often seem so helpless and frail. But there are none in the forest so bright as these." They now came upon more and more of the big scarlet poppies, and fewer and fewer of the other flowers; and soon they found themselves in the midst of a great meadow of poppies. Now it is well known that when there are many of these flowers together their odor is so powerful that anyone who breathes it falls asleep, and if the sleeper is not carried away from the scent of the flowers, he sleeps on and on forever. But Dorothy did not know this, nor could she get away from the bright red flowers that were everywhere about; so presently her eyes grew heavy and she felt she must sit down to rest and to sleep.


But the Tin Woodman would not let her do this (но Железный Дровосек не позволил ей сделать это).

"We must hurry (мы должны спешить) and get back to the road of yellow brick before dark (и вернуться к дороге из желтого кирпича до темноты)," he said; and the Scarecrow agreed with him (сказал он, и Страшила согласился с ним). So they kept walking (и он продолжали идти) until Dorothy could stand no longer (пока Дороти уже не могла идти дальше; to stand — стоять; выдерживать, выносить). Her eyes closed in spite of herself (ее глаза закрылись, вопреки ей самой = сами по себе; in spite of — несмотря на, вопреки) and she forgot where she was and fell among the poppies, fast asleep (и она позабыла, где она находится, и упала среди маков, крепко заснув).

"What shall we do (что же нам делать)?" asked the Tin Woodman.

"If we leave her here she will die (если мы оставим ее здесь, она умрет)," said the Lion. "The smell of the flowers is killing us all (запах этих цветов убивает нас всех; smell — обоняние; запах). I myself can scarcely keep my eyes open (я сам едва могу держать свои глаза открытыми), and the dog is asleep already (и собака уже спит)." It was true (это было правдой); Toto had fallen down beside his little mistress (Тото упал рядом со своей маленькой госпожой).


hurry ['hArI], agree [q'gri:], spite [spaIt], die [daI], scarcely ['skeqslI], asleep [q'sli:p], mistress ['mIstrIs]


But the Tin Woodman would not let her do this.

"We must hurry and get back to the road of yellow brick before dark," he said; and the Scarecrow agreed with him. So they kept walking until Dorothy could stand no longer. Her eyes closed in spite of herself and she forgot where she was and fell among the poppies, fast asleep.

"What shall we do?" asked the Tin Woodman.

"If we leave her here she will die," said the Lion. "The smell of the flowers is killing us all. I myself can scarcely keep my eyes open, and the dog is asleep already." It was true; Toto had fallen down beside his little mistress.


But the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman, not being made of flesh (но Страшила и Железный Дровосек, не будучи сделанными из плоти), were not troubled by the scent of the flowers (не были обеспокоены ароматом этих цветов; to trouble — тревожить, волновать; беспокоить, мучить).

"Run fast (быстрей беги)," said the Scarecrow to the Lion (сказал Страшила Льву), "and get out of this deadly flower bed as soon as you can (и выбирайся из этой смертельной клумбы как можно скорее; flower — цветок; bed — кровать; клумба, гряда; flowerbed — клумба). We will bring the little girl with us (мы унесем с собой маленькую девочку), but if you should fall asleep you are too big to be carried (но если ты заснешь, ты слишком большой, чтобы /мы смогли тебя/ унести)."

So the Lion aroused himself (поэтому Лев поднялся) and bounded forward as fast as he could go (и прыжками бросился вперед так быстро, как только мог; to bound — прыгать, скакать, быстро бежать). In a moment he was out of sight (через мгновение он был вне поля зрения = исчез из вида).

"Let us make a chair with our hands and carry her (давай сделаем стул из наших рук и понесем ее)," said the Scarecrow. So they picked up Toto and put the dog in Dorothy's lap (тогда они подняли Тото и положили песика Дороти на колени; lap — колени / сидящего человека /), and then they made a chair with their hands for the seat (и затем они сделали стул, их ладони /образовали/ сидение; seat — место / для сидения /; сиденье / стула, табуретки и т. п. /) and their arms for the arms (и их руки послужили подлокотниками; arm — рука / от плеча до кисти /; ручка, подлокотник / кресла /) and carried the sleeping girl between them through the flowers (и понесли спящую девочку /на них = между ними/ меж цветов).

But the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman, not being made of flesh, were not troubled by the scent of the flowers.

"Run fast," said the Scarecrow to the Lion, "and get out of this deadly flower bed as soon as you can. We will bring the little girl with us, but if you should fall asleep you are too big to be carried." So the Lion aroused himself and bounded forward as fast as he could go. In a moment he was out of sight.

"Let us make a chair with our hands and carry her," said the Scarecrow. So they picked up Toto and put the dog in Dorothy's lap, and then they made a chair with their hands for the seat and their arms for the arms and carried the sleeping girl between them through the flowers.


On and on they walked (они шли все дальше и дальше), and it seemed that the great carpet of deadly flowers that surrounded them would never end (и казалось, что огромный ковер из смертельных цветов, что окружал их, никогда /не/ закончится). They followed the bend of the river (они следовали за излучиной реки; bend — сгиб, изгиб; поворот; a bend of a river — излучина реки), and at last came upon their friend the Lion (и, наконец, они натолкнулись на своего друга Льва), lying fast asleep among the poppies (который лежал и крепко спал среди маков). The flowers had been too strong for the huge beast (цветы оказались слишком сильными для этого огромного зверя) and he had given up at last (и он наконец сдался; to give up — отказаться / от работы, предложения и т. п. /; сдаться), and fallen only a short distance from the end of the poppy bed (и упал лишь на небольшом расстоянии от окончания ковра из маков: «маковой клумбы»), where the sweet grass spread in beautiful green fields before them (где душистая трава расстилалась прекрасными зелеными полями перед ними; sweet — сладкий; душистый; to spread — распространять / по поверхности /; простираться).

"We can do nothing for him (мы ничего не можем для него сделать)," said the Tin Woodman, sadly (сказал Железный Дровосек печально); "for he is much too heavy to lift (потому что он слишком тяжелый, чтобы /мы смогли его/ поднять). We must leave him here to sleep on forever (мы должны оставить его здесь продолжать спать вечно), and perhaps he will dream that he has found courage at last (возможно, ему приснится, что он нашел смелость наконец)."

On and on they walked, and it seemed that the great carpet of deadly flowers that surrounded them would never end. They followed the bend of the river, and at last came upon their friend the Lion, lying fast asleep among the poppies. The flowers had been too strong for the huge beast and he had given up at last, and fallen only a short distance from the end of the poppy bed, where the sweet grass spread in beautiful green fields before them.

"We can do nothing for him," said the Tin Woodman, sadly; "for he is much too heavy to lift. We must leave him here to sleep on forever, and perhaps he will dream that he has found courage at last."


"I'm sorry (мне очень жаль)," said the Scarecrow. "The Lion was a very good comrade for one so cowardly (Лев был очень хорошим товарищем для столь трусливого /льва/ = несмотря на свою трусость). But let us go on (но давай пойдем дальше)."

They carried the sleeping girl to a pretty spot beside the river (они отнесли спящую девочку к прелестному местечку около реки; spot — пятно, пятнышко; место, местность), far enough from the poppy field to prevent her breathing any more of the poison of the flowers (достаточно далеко от макового поля, чтобы помешать ей /продолжать/ вдыхать яд цветов; to prevent — предотвращать, предупреждать; мешать, препятствовать, не допускать), and here they laid her gently on the soft grass (и здесь они осторожно положили ее на мягкую траву; gently — мягко, тихо, спокойно; легко, осторожно; to lay — класть) and waited for the fresh breeze to waken her (и стали ждать, когда свежий ветерок разбудит ее).

It was true (это было правдой); Toto had fallen down beside his little mistress (Тото упал рядом со своей маленькой госпожой).

But the Tin Woodman would not let her do this.

"We must hurry and get back to the road of yellow brick before dark," he said; and the Scarecrow agreed with him. So they kept walking until Dorothy could stand no longer. Her eyes closed in spite of herself and she forgot where she was and fell among the poppies, fast asleep.

"What shall we do?" asked the Tin Woodman.

"If we leave her here she will die," said the Lion. "The smell of the flowers is killing us all. I myself can scarcely keep my eyes open, and the dog is asleep already." It was true; Toto had fallen down beside his little mistress.


But the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman, not being made of flesh (но Страшила и Железный Дровосек, не будучи сделанными из плоти), were not troubled by the scent of the flowers (не были обеспокоены ароматом этих цветов; to trouble — тревожить, волновать; беспокоить, мучить).

"Run fast (быстрей беги)," said the Scarecrow to the Lion (сказал Страшила Льву), "and get out of this deadly flower bed as soon as you can (и выбирайся из этой смертельной клумбы как можно скорее; flower — цветок; bed — кровать; клумба, гряда; flowerbed — клумба).
