IN WHICH CHRISTOPHER ROBIN LEADS AN EXPOTITION TO THE NORTH POLE

Глава 8,

В которой Кристофер Робин ведет Искпедицию к Северному Полюсу

ONE fine day Pooh had stumped up to the top of the Forest to see (в один прекрасный день Пух приковылял в верхнюю часть Леса/чтобы выяснить) if his friend Christopher Robin was interested in Bears at all (интересуется ли его друг Кристофер Робин вообще медведями). At breakfast that morning (a simple meal of marmalade spread lightly over a honeycomb or two) (за завтраком в то утро(простенькая еда из джема намазанного тонким слоем на медовые соты или две = пару медовых сот) he had suddenly thought of a new song (он вдруг придумал новую песню). It began like this (она начиналась так; to begin):

Sing Ho (/пой ого)! for the life of a Bear (что за жизнь у Медведя).”

marmalade ['mɑ:məleɪd], spread [spred], honeycomb ['hʌnɪkəum]

ONE fine day Pooh had stumped up to the top of the Forest to see if his friend Christopher Robin was interested in Bears at all. At breakfast that morning (a simple meal of marmalade spread lightly over a honeycomb or two) he had suddenly thought of a new song. It began like this:

“Sing Ho! for the life of a Bear.”

When he had got as far as this (когда он добрался до этого/места/), he scratched his head, and thought to himself (он почесал/свою голову и подумал про себя), “That's a very good start for a song, but what about the second line (это очень хорошее начало для песни но как насчет второй строки)?” He tried singing “Ho,” two or three times (он попробовал спеть ОГО три раза), but it didn't seem to help (но казалось это не помогло). “Perhaps it would be better,” he thought (может быть было бы лучше подумал он), “if I sang Hi for the life of a Bear (если бы я спел ЭГЕ что за жизнь у Медведя).” So he sang it... but it wasn't (и он спел это но это не было = лучше не получилось). “Very well, then,” he said (очень хорошо тогда сказал он), “I shall sing that first line twice (я пропою эту первую строку дважды), and perhaps if I sing it very quickly (и может быть если я спою ее очень быстро), I shall find myself singing the third and fourth lines (окажется что я пропою третью и четвертую строчки) before I have time to think of them (прежде чем/я успею придумать их), and that will be a Good Song (и это будет Хорошая Песня). Now then (ну-ка):”

perhaps [pə'hæps], before [bɪ'fɔ:], two [tu:]

When he had got as far as this, he scratched his head, and thought to himself, “That's a very good start for a song, but what about the second line?” He tried singing “Ho,” two or three times, but it didn't seem to help. “Perhaps it would be better,” he thought, “if I sang Hi for the life of a Bear.” So he sang it... but it wasn't. “Very well, then,” he said, “I shall sing that first line twice, and perhaps if I sing it very quickly, I shall find myself singing the third and fourth lines before I have time to think of them, and that will be a Good Song. Now then:”

Sing Ho! for the life of a Bear (ого что за жизнь у Медведя)!

Sing Ho! for the life of a Bear (ого что за жизнь у Медведя)!

I don't much mind if it rains or snows (я не против если пойдет дождь или снег),

'Cos I've got a lot of honey on my nice new nose (потому что у меня много меда на моем милом новом носе)!

I don't much care if it snows or thaws (меня не особо заботит идет или тает снег),

'Cos I've got a lot of honey on my nice clean paws (потому что у меня много меда на моих милых чистых лапках)!

Sing Ho! for a Bear (ура Медведю)!

Sing Ho! for a Pooh (ура Пуху)!

And I'll have a little something in an hour or two (и я приму чего-нибудь немного = перекушу через час или два)!

new [nju:], thaw [θɔ:], hour [auə]

Sing Ho! for the life of a Bear!

Sing Ho! for the life of a Bear!

I don't much mind if it rains or snows,

'Cos I've got a lot of honey on my nice new nose!

I don't much care if it snows or thaws,

'Cos I've got a lot of honey on my nice clean paws!

Sing Ho! for a Bear!

Sing Ho! for a Pooh!

And I'll have a little something in an hour or two!

He was so pleased with this song (он был так доволен своей песней) that he sang it all the way to the top of the Forest (что он распевал ее всю дорогу до верхней части Леса), “and if I go on singing it much longer,” he thought (а если я буду продолжать петь ее гораздо дольше подумал он), “it will be time for the little something (наступит время для маленького чего-то = перекусона), and then the last line won't be true (и тогда последняя строка будет неправда).” So he turned it into a hum instead (поэтому он превратил ее вместо этого в хмыкалку песенку без слов = стал напевать ее без слов; hum — напевание без слов).

Christopher Robin was sitting outside his door (Кристофер Робин сидел снаружи = перед /своей дверью), putting on his Big Boots (надевая свои Большие Сапоги). As soon as he saw the Big Boots (как только Пух увидел Большие Сапоги), Pooh knew that an Adventure was going to happen (он узнал = понял, что предстоит/случится Приключение), and he brushed the honey off his nose with the back of his paw (и он вытер мед со своего носа тыльной стороной/своей лапки), and spruced himself up as well as he could (и прихорошился как только мог; to spruce up — прихорашиваться наводить красоту), so as to look Ready for Anything (чтобы выглядеть Готовым к Чему Угодно).

instead [ɪn'sted], adventure [əd'venʧə], spruce [spru:s]

He was so pleased with this song that he sang it all the way to the top of the Forest, “and if I go on singing it much longer,” he thought, “it will be time for the little something, and then the last line won't be true.” So he turned it into a hum instead.

Christopher Robin was sitting outside his door, putting on his Big Boots. As soon as he saw the Big Boots, Pooh knew that an Adventure was going to happen, and he brushed the honey off his nose with the back of his paw, and spruced himself up as well as he could, so as to look Ready for Anything.

“Good morning, Christopher Robin (доброе утро Кристофер Робин),” he called out (крикнул он).

“Hallo, Pooh Bear (привет Мишка Пух). I can't get this boot on (я не могу натянуть этот сапог).”

“That's bad,” said Pooh (это плохо сказал Пух).

“Do you think you could very kindly lean against me (ты думаешь ты мог бы любезно упереться в меня = будь любезен упрись в меня; to lean against — опирать/ся прислонять/ся/), 'cos I keep pulling so hard that I fall over backwards (потому что я продолжаю натягивать = натягиваю так сильно что/я падаю назад).”

Pooh sat down, dug his feet into the ground (Пух сел вонзил = упер ноги в землю; to dig in — вонзать; to dig — рыть копать), and pushed hard against Christopher Robin's back (и сильно пихнул = стал сильно упираться в спину Кристофера Робина), and Christopher Robin pushed hard against his (а Кристофер Робин сильно толкал = упирался в его/спину/), and pulled and pulled at his boot (и тянул и тянул свой сапог) until he had got it on (пока он/не натянул его; to have smth. on — иметь что-либо/на себе надетым; to get smth. on — надеть натянуть что-либо).

'cos [kɔz], pull [pul], backwards ['bækwədz]

“Good morning, Christopher Robin,” he called out.

“Hallo, Pooh Bear. I can't get this boot on.”

“That's bad,” said Pooh.

“Do you think you could very kindly lean against me, 'cos I keep pulling so hard that I fall over backwards.”

Pooh sat down, dug his feet into the ground, and pushed hard against Christopher Robin's back, and Christopher Robin pushed hard against his, and pulled and pulled at his boot until he had got it on.

“And that's that,” said Pooh (и дело с концом сказал Пух). “What do we do next (что/делаем дальше)?”

“We are all going on an Expedition (мы все идем в Экспедицию),” said Christopher Robin (сказал Кристофер Робин), as he got up and brushed himself (когда он поднялся и отряхнулся = поднимаясь и отряхиваясь). “Thank you, Pooh (спасибо Пух).”

“Going on an Expotition (идем в Икспедицию)?” said Pooh eagerly (сказал Пух с жадным любопытством; eager — страстно желающий жаждущий). “I don't think I've ever been on one of those (мне кажется я никогда/не ходил ни в одну из них). Where are we going to on this Expotition (и куда мы пойдем в эту Икспедицию)?”

“Expedition, silly old Bear (Экспедицию глупый старый Мишка). It's got an 'x' in it (в ней ЭКС).”

“Oh!” said Pooh (ах сказал Пух). “I know (я знаю).” But he didn't really (но на самом деле он не знал).

“We're going to discover the North Pole (мы идем будем открывать Северный Полюс).”

expedition ["ekspɪ'dɪʃn], next [nekst], discover [dɪs'kʌvə]

“And that's that,” said Pooh. “What do we do next?”

“We are all going on an Expedition,” said Christopher Robin, as he got up and brushed himself. “Thank you, Pooh.”

“Going on an Expotition?” said Pooh eagerly. “I don't think I've ever been on one of those. Where are we going to on this Expotition?”

“Expedition, silly old Bear. It's got an 'x' in it.”

“Oh!” said Pooh. “I know.” But he didn't really.

“We're going to discover the North Pole.”

“Oh!” said Pooh again (а сказал Пух снова). “What is the North Pole (что такое Северный Полюс)?” he asked (спросил он).

“It's just a thing you discover (это просто штука/которую ты открываешь),” said Christopher Robin carelessly (сказал Кристофер Робин небрежно), not being quite sure himself (не будучи вполне уверен сам).

“Oh! I see,” said Pooh (а понятно сказал Пух). “Are bears any good at discovering it (а у медведей хорошо получается открывать его)?”

“Of course they are (конечно/получается/). And Rabbit and Kanga and all of you (и у Кролика и Кенги и всех вас). It's an Expedition (это Экспедиция). That's what an Expedition means (именно это и означает Экспедиция). A long line of everybody (длинная вереница всех). You'd better tell the others to get ready (тебе лучше сказать остальным чтобы приготовились), while I see if my gun's all right (пока я проверю в порядке ли мое ружье). And we must all bring Provisions (и мы должны все принести = взять Провизию).”

ready ['redɪ], gun [gʌn], provision [prə'vɪʒn]

“Oh!” said Pooh again. “What is the North Pole?” he asked.

“It's just a thing you discover,” said Christopher Robin carelessly, not being quite sure himself.

“Oh! I see,” said Pooh. “Are bears any good at discovering it?”

“Of course they are. And Rabbit and Kanga and all of you. It's an Expedition. That's what an Expedition means. A long line of everybody. You'd better tell the others to get ready, while I see if my gun's all right. And we must all bring Provisions.”

“Bring what (взять что)?”

“Things to eat (еду«вещи чтобы есть»).”

“Oh!” said Pooh happily (а сказал Пух счастливо). “I thought you said Provisions (я думал ты сказал Провизию). I'll go and tell them (я пойду/и скажу им).” And he stumped off (и он потопал прочь).

The first person he met was Rabbit (первой особой = первым, /кого он встретил был Кролик; to meet — встречать).

“Hallo, Rabbit,” he said, “is that you (привет Кролик сказал он это ты)?”

“Let's pretend it isn't,” said Rabbit (предположим что нет сказал Кролик), “and see what happens (и посмотрим что произойдет).”

“I've got a message for you (у меня к тебе послание).”

“I'll give it to him (я передам его ему).”

pretend [prɪ'tend], happen [hæpn], message ['mesɪdʒ]

“Bring what?”

“Things to eat.”

“Oh!” said Pooh happily. “I thought you said Provisions. I'll go and tell them.” And he stumped off.

The first person he met was Rabbit.

“Hallo, Rabbit,” he said, “is that you?”

“Let's pretend it isn't,” said Rabbit, “and see what happens.”

“I've got a message for you.”

“I'll give it to him.”

“We're all going on an Expotition with Christopher Robin (мы все идем в Искпедицию с Кристофером Робином)!”

“What is it when we're on it (что это будет когда мы будем в ней)?”

“A sort of boat, I think,” said Pooh (вид лодки я думаю сказал Пух).

“Oh! that sort (а этот вид).”

“Yes (да). And we're going to discover a Pole or something (и мы собираемся открыть Полюс или что-то в этом роде). Or was it a Mole (или это был Плюс; mole — крот)? Anyhow we're going to discover it (в всяком случае мы намерены открыть его).”

“We are, are we?” said Rabbit (мы да сказал Кролик).

“Yes (да). And we've got to bring Pro-things to eat with us (и нам нужно принести Про-еду/чтобы есть с собой). In case we want to eat them (на тот случай если мы захотим их = ее есть). Now I'm going down to Piglet's (теперь я иду = пойду к Пятачку). Tell Kanga, will you (скажи Кенге пожалуйста)?”

boat [bəut], case [keɪs], want [wɔnt]

“We're all going on an Expotition with Christopher Robin!”

“What is it when we're on it?”

“A sort of boat, I think,” said Pooh.

“Oh! that sort.”

“Yes. And we're going to discover a Pole or something. Or was it a Mole? Anyhow we're going to discover it.”

“We are, are we?” said Rabbit.

“Yes. And we've got to bring Pro-things to eat with us. In case we want to eat them. Now I'm going down to Piglet's. Tell Kanga, will you?”

He left Rabbit and hurried down to Piglet's house (он оставил Кролика и поспешил к дому Пятачка; to leave — покидать оставлять).

The Piglet was sitting on the ground at the door of his house (Пятачок сидел на земле у двери своего дома) blowing happily at a dandelion (счастливо дуя на одуванчик), and wondering whether it would be this year, next year, some time or never (и спрашивал будет ли это в этом году в следующем году когда-нибудь или никогда). He had just discovered that it would be never (он только что обнаружил что этого не будет никогда), and was trying to remember what “it” was (и пытался вспомнить что было«это»), and hoping it wasn't anything nice (и надеялся что это не было чем-то хорошим), when Pooh came up (когда подошел Пух).

He left Rabbit and hurried down to Piglet's house.

He had just discovered that it would be never, and was trying to remember what “it” was, and hoping it wasn't anything nice, when Pooh came up.

“Oh! Piglet,” said Pooh excitedly (ах Пятачок сказал Пух взволнованно), we're going on an Expotition (мы идем в Искпедицию), all of us, with things to eat (все мы с едой«с вещами чтобы есть»). To discover something (чтобы что-то открыть).”

“To discover what (открыть что)?” said Piglet anxiously (спросил обеспокоенно Пятачок).

“Oh! just something (а просто что-то).”

“Nothing fierce (ничего свирепого)?”

“Christopher Robin didn't say anything about fierce (Кристофер Робин не говорил ничего о свирепом). He just said it had an 'x' (он лишь сказал что в нем есть ЭКС).”

“It isn't their necks42 I mind,” said Piglet earnestly (я не возражаю против их ТьЭКСтов сказал убедительно Пятачок; neck — шея). “It's their teeth (а вот их зубы). But if Christopher Robin is coming I don't mind anything (но если идет Кристофер Робин я не возражаю против ничего = вообще).”

“Oh! Piglet,” said Pooh excitedly, we're going on an Expotition, all of us, with things to eat. To discover something.”

“To discover what?” said Piglet anxiously.

“Oh! just something.”

“Nothing fierce?”

“Christopher Robin didn't say anything about fierce. He just said it had an 'x'.”

“It isn't their necks I mind,” said Piglet earnestly. “It's their teeth. But if Christopher Robin is coming I don't mind anything.”

In a little while they were all ready at the top of the Forest (через маленькое время = вскоре они были все готовы в верхней части Леса), and the Expotition started (и Искпедиция отправилась). First came Christopher Robin and Rabbit (первым шел Кристофер Робин и Кролик), then Piglet and Pooh (затем Пятачок и Пух); then Kanga, with Roo in her pocket, and Owl (потом Кенга с Ру в/ее кармане и Филин); then Eeyore; and, at the end (потом Иа и в конце), in a long line, all Rabbit's friends-and-relations (длинной вереницей все друзья и родственники Кролика).

“I didn't ask them (я не просил их),” explained Rabbit carelessly (объяснил Кролик небрежно). “They just came (они просто пришли). They always do (они всегда делают = приходят). They can march at the end, after Eeyore (они могут шагать в конце за Иа).”

In a little while they were all ready at the top of the Forest, and the Expotition started. First came Christopher Robin and Rabbit, then Piglet and Pooh; then Kanga, with Roo in her pocket, and Owl; then Eeyore; and, at the end, in a long line, all Rabbit's friends-and-relations.

“I didn't ask them,” explained Rabbit carelessly. “They just came. They always do. They can march at the end, after Eeyore.”

“What I say,” said Eeyore, “is that it's unsettling (что я скажу сказал Иа так это то что это нарушает спокойствие; to settle — поселить/ся ставить на место приводить в порядок; to unsettle — нарушать/рас/порядок/чего-либо выбивать/кого-либо из колеи расстраивать тревожить волновать нарушать спокойствие). I didn't want to come on this Expo—what Pooh said (я не хотел идти в эту Искпу как там сказал Пух). I only came to oblige (я пришел лишь/чтобы сделать одолжение). But here I am (но вот я здесь); and if I am the end of the Expo (и если я конец Искпу) —what we're talking about (о чем мы там говорим) —then let me be the end (то пусть я буду концом). But if, every time I want to sit down for a little rest (но если всякий раз/как я хочу сесть/чтобы немножко передохнуть), I have to brush away half a dozen of Rabbit's smaller friends-and-relations first (мне приходится сначала смахнуть дюжину мелких друзей и родственников Кролика), then this isn't an Expo—whatever it is—at all (то это вовсе не Искпу или как ее там), it's simply a Confused Noise (это просто Беспорядочная Суматоха; noise — шум гам грохот гвалт гудение гул). That's what I say (вот что я скажу).”

“I see what Eeyore means,” said Owl (я понял что имеет в виду Иа сказал Филин). “If you ask me— (если ты спрашиваешь меня)

oblige [ə'blaɪdʒ], dozen [dʌzn], confused [kən'fju:zd]

“What I say,” said Eeyore, “is that it's unsettling. I didn't want to come on this Expo—what Pooh said. I only came to oblige. But here I am; and if I am the end of the Expo—what we're talking about—then let me be the end. But if, every time I want to sit down for a little rest, I have to brush away half a dozen of Rabbit's smaller friends-and-relations first, then this isn't an Expo—whatever it is—at all, it's simply a Confused Noise. That's what I say.”

“I see what Eeyore means,” said Owl. “If you ask me—”

“I'm not asking anybody,” said Eeyore (я никого не спрашиваю сказал Иа). “I'm just telling everybody (я просто говорю всем). We can look for the North Pole (мы можем искать Северный Полюс), or we can play 'Here we go gathering Nuts and May' with the end part of an ants' nest (либо/мы можем сыграть в«Вот мы идем собирать Орехи и Боярышник»43 с замыкающей частью44 муравейника). It's all the same to me (мне все равно).”

There was a shout from the top of the line (раздался крик от головы колонны).

“Come on!” called Christopher Robin (давай = вперед! — крикнул Кристофер Робин).

“Come on!” called Owl (вперед крикнул Филин).

“We're starting,” said Rabbit (мы отправляемся сказал Кролик). “I must go (я должен идти).” And he hurried off to the front of the Expotition with Christopher Robin (и он поспешил к передней части = головной части Искпедиции с Кристофером Робином).

North [nɔ:θ], part [pɑ:t], ant [ænt]

“I'm not asking anybody,” said Eeyore. “I'm just telling everybody. We can look for the North Pole, or we can play 'Here we go gathering Nuts and May' with the end part of an ants' nest. It's all the same to me.”

There was a shout from the top of the line.

“Come on!” called Christopher Robin.

“Come on!” called Owl.

“We're starting,” said Rabbit. “I must go.” And he hurried off to the front of the Expotition with Christopher Robin.

“All right,” said Eeyore (ладно сказал Иа). “We're going (мы идем). Only Don't Blame Me (Только Не Вините Меня).”

So off they all went to discover the Pole (и они все пошли открывать Полюс). And as they walked (и когда они шли), they chattered to each other of this and that (они болтали друг с другом о том о сем), all except Pooh, who was making up a song (все кроме Пуха который сочинял песню).

“This is the first verse,” he said to Piglet (это первая строфа сказал он Пятачку), when he was ready with it (когда она была готова«он был готов с ней»).

“First verse of what (первая строфа чего)?”

“My song (моей песни).”

“What song (какой песни)?”

“This one (вот этой).”

“Which one (которой)?”

“Well, if you listen, Piglet, you'll hear it (ну если ты послушаешь Пятачок/то ты ее услышишь).”

“How do you know I'm not listening (откуда ты знаешь что я не слушаю)?” Pooh couldn't answer that one (Пух не мог ответить на это), so he began to sing (поэтому он начал петь).

each [i:ʧ], chatter ['ʧætə], answer ['ɑ:nsə]

“All right,” said Eeyore. “We're going. Only Don't Blame Me.”

So off they all went to discover the Pole. And as they walked, they chattered to each other of this and that, all except Pooh, who was making up a song.

“This is the first verse,” he said to Piglet, when he was ready with it.

“First verse of what?”

“My song.”

“What song?”

“This one.”

“Which one?”

“Well, if you listen, Piglet, you'll hear it.”

“How do you know I'm not listening?” Pooh couldn't answer that one, so he began to sing.

They all went off to discover the Pole (они все отправились чтобы открыть Полюс),

Owl and Piglet and Rabbit and all (Филин и Пятачок и Кролик и все);

It's a Thing you Discover, as I've been tole45 (это штука/которую/ты открываешь как мне сказали)

By Owl and Piglet and Rabbit and all (Филин и Пятачок и Кролик и все).

Eeyore, Christopher Robin and Pooh (Иа Кристофер Робин и Пух)

And Rabbit's relations all went too— (и родственники Кролика все тоже пошли)

And where the Pole was none of them knew (а где был Полюс не знал никто из них)...

Sing Hey! for Owl and Rabbit and all (ура Филину и Кролику и всем)!

They all went off to discover the Pole,

Owl and Piglet and Rabbit and all;

It's a Thing you Discover, as I've been tole

By Owl and Piglet and Rabbit and all.

Eeyore, Christopher Robin and Pooh

And Rabbit's relations all went too—

And where the Pole was none of them knew...

Sing Hey! for Owl and Rabbit and all!

“Hush!” said Christopher Robin turning round to Pooh (тс сказал Кристофер Робин обернувшись Пуху; hush — тс ш-ш ша тише), “we're just coming to a Dangerous Place (мы как раз подходим к Опасному Месту; danger — опасность).”

“Hush!” said Pooh turning round quickly to Piglet (тс сказал Пух быстро обернувшись Пятачку).

“Hush!” said Piglet to Kanga (тс сказал Пятачок Кенге).

“Hush!” said Kanga to Owl (тс сказала Кенга Филину), while Roo said “Hush!” several times to himself, very quietly (в то время как Ру сказал«тс несколько раз себе очень тихо).

“Hush!” said Owl to Eeyore (тс сказал Филин Иа).

hush [hʌʃ], round [raund], several ['sevrəl]

“Hush!” said Christopher Robin turning round to Pooh, “we're just coming to a Dangerous Place.”

“Hush!” said Pooh turning round quickly to Piglet.

“Hush!” said Piglet to Kanga.

“Hush!” said Kanga to Owl, while Roo said “Hush!” several times to himself, very quietly.

“Hush!” said Owl to Eeyore.

“Hush!” said Eeyore in a terrible voice to all Rabbit's friends-and-relations (тс сказал Иа страшным голосом46 всем друзьям и родственникам Кролика), and “Hush!” they said hastily to each other all down the line (и«тс они сказали поспешно друг другу до самого конца колонны), until it got to the last one of all (пока это/не дошло до самого последнего из них). And the last and smallest friend-and-relation was so upset to find that the whole Expotition was saying “Hush!” to him (и самый последний и самый маленький друг и родственник был так расстроен = расстроился, обнаружив что вся Искпедиция говорит«тс шикает ему), that he buried himself head downwards in a crack in the ground (что он схоронился головой вниз в трещинке в земле), and stayed there for two days until the danger was over (и оставался там два дня пока опасность не миновала; to be over — закончиться), and then went home in a great hurry (а потом пошел домой в большой = сильной спешке), and lived quietly with his Aunt ever-afterwards (и жил тихо со своей Тетушкой всегда-впоследствии). His name was Alexander Beetle (его звали Александр Таракандр47).

terrible ['terəbl], hastily ['heɪstɪlɪ], danger ['deɪndʒə]

“Hush!” said Eeyore in a terrible voice to all Rabbit's friends-and-relations, and “Hush!” they said hastily to each other all down the line, until it got to the last one of all. And the last and smallest friend-and-relation was so upset to find that the whole Expotition was saying “Hush!” to him, that he buried himself head downwards in a crack in the ground, and stayed there for two days until the danger was over, and then went home in a great hurry, and lived quietly with his Aunt ever-afterwards. His name was Alexander Beetle.

They had come to a stream (они пришли к ручью) which twisted and tumbled between high rocky banks (который извивался и кувыркался между высокими скалистыми берегами), and Christopher Robin saw at once how dangerous it was (и Кристофер Робин сразу понял«увидел как это опасно).

“It's just the place,” he explained, “for an Ambush48 (это как раз место объяснил он для Засады = Засад).”

“What sort of bush (какой куст = сад)?” whispered Pooh to Piglet (прошептал Пух Пятачку). “A gorse-bush (утесниковый)?”

“My dear Pooh,” said Owl in his superior way (мой дорогой Пух сказал Филин надменно«в его надменном способе»), “don't you know what an Ambush is (разве ты не знаешь что такое Засада)?”

“Owl,” said Piglet, looking round at him severely (Филин сказал Пятачок оглянувшись строго на него = обернувшись и строго глядя на него; to look round — оглянуться; severe — суровый), “Pooh's whisper was a perfectly private whisper (шепот Пуха был совершенно частным шепотом), and there was no need— (и не было нужды)

They had come to a stream which twisted and tumbled between high rocky banks, and Christopher Robin saw at once how dangerous it was.

“It's just the place,” he explained, “for an Ambush.”

“What sort of bush?” whispered Pooh to Piglet. “A gorse-bush?”

“My dear Pooh,” said Owl in his superior way, “don't you know what an Ambush is?”

“Owl,” said Piglet, looking round at him severely, “Pooh's whisper was a perfectly private whisper, and there was no need—”

“An Ambush,” said Owl, “is a sort of Surprise (Засада сказал Филин это своего рода Неожиданность).”

“So is a gorse-bush sometimes,” said Pooh (и утесник тоже иногда сказал Пух49).

“An Ambush, as I was about to explain to Pooh,” said Piglet, “is a sort of Surprise (Засада как я собирался объяснить Пуху сказал Пятачок своего рода Неожиданность).”

“If people jump out at you suddenly (если/люди выскакивают на тебя неожиданно), that's an Ambush,” said Owl (это засада сказал Филин).

“It's an Ambush, Pooh (Засада Пух это), when people jump at you suddenly,” explained Piglet (когда на тебя неожиданно наскакивают/люди пояснил Пятачок).

surprise [sə'praɪz], people [pi:pl], suddenly ['sʌdənlɪ]

“An Ambush,” said Owl, “is a sort of Surprise.”

“So is a gorse-bush sometimes,” said Pooh.

“An Ambush, as I was about to explain to Pooh,” said Piglet, “is a sort of Surprise.”

“If people jump out at you suddenly, that's an Ambush,” said Owl.

“It's an Ambush, Pooh, when people jump at you suddenly,” explained Piglet.

Pooh, who now knew what an Ambush was (Пух который теперь знал что такое Засада), said that a gorse-bush had sprung at him suddenly one day (сказал что однажды один утесник неожиданно наскочил на него; to spring — прыгать скакать бросаться) when he fell off a tree (когда он упал с дерева; to fall), and he had taken six days to get all the prickles out of himself (и ему понадобилось шесть дней/чтобы извлечь из себя все колючки).

“We are not talking about gorse-bushes (мы не говорим/сейчас об утесниках),” said Owl a little crossly (сказал Филин немного сердито).

“I am,” said Pooh (а я говорю сказал Пух).

They were climbing very cautiously up the stream now (теперь они карабкались очень осторожно вверх по ручью), going from rock to rock (/переходя от скалы к скале), and after they had gone a little way (и после того как они немного прошли) they came to a place (они пришли = подошли к месту) where the banks widened out at each side (где берега расширялись по обеим сторонам), so that on each side of the water there was a level strip of grass on which they could sit down and rest (так что на каждой стороне воды = потока была ровная полоска травы на которую они могли сесть и отдохнуть). As soon as he saw this (как только Кристофер Робин увидел это), Christopher Robin called “Halt (он крикнул стой)!” and they all sat down and rested (и они все сели и отдохнули = стали отдыхать).

knew [nju:], climb [klaɪm], cautiously ['kɔ:ʃəslɪ]

Pooh, who now knew what an Ambush was, said that a gorse-bush had sprung at him suddenly one day when he fell off a tree, and he had taken six days to get all the prickles out of himself.

“We are not talking about gorse-bushes,” said Owl a little crossly.

“I am,” said Pooh.

They were climbing very cautiously up the stream now, going from rock to rock, and after they had gone a little way they came to a place where the banks widened out at each side, so that on each side of the water there was a level strip of grass on which they could sit down and rest. As soon as he saw this, Christopher Robin called “Halt!” and they all sat down and rested.

“I think,” said Christopher Robin (я думаю сказал Кристофер Робин), “that we ought to eat all our Provisions now (что нам следует съесть сейчас всю нашу Провизию), so that we shan't have so much to carry (так чтобы нам не нужно было так много нести).”

“Eat all our what?” said Pooh (съесть всю нашу что спросил Пух).

“All that we've brought (все что мы принесли),” said Piglet, getting to work (сказал Пятачок принимаясь за работу).

“That's a good idea (это хорошая мысль),” said Pooh, and he got to work too (сказал Пух и/он тоже принялся за работу).

“Have you all got something (у всех есть что-нибудь)?” asked Christopher Robin with his mouth full (спросил Кристофер Робин с полным ртом).

ought [ɔ:t], work [wə:k], full [ful]

“I think,” said Christopher Robin, “that we ought to eat all our Provisions now, so that we shan't have so much to carry.”

“Eat all our what?” said Pooh.

“All that we've brought,” said Piglet, getting to work.

“That's a good idea,” said Pooh, and he got to work too.

“Have you all got something?” asked Christopher Robin with his mouth full.

“All except me,” said Eeyore (у всех кроме меня сказал Иа). “As Usual (как Обычно).” He looked round at them in his melancholy way (он оглянулся на них в своей меланхоличной манере).

I suppose none of you are sitting on a thistle by any chance (я полагаю/что никто из вас случайно/не сидит на чертополохе)?”

“I believe I am,” said Pooh (мне кажется я/сижу сказал Пух). “Ow (ай)!” He got up, and looked behind him (он встал и посмотрел за себя = назад50). “Yes, I was (да). I thought so (я так и думал).”

“Thank you, Pooh (спасибо Пух). If you've quite finished with it (если ты уже совсем закончил/с этим/).” He moved across to Pooh's place, and began to eat (он переместился к месту/где сидел Пух и начал есть).

“It doesn't do them any Good, you know, sitting on them,” he went on (знаешь сидение на нем не приносит ему никакой Пользы продолжил он), as he looked up munching (когда он поднял взгляд чавкая). “Takes all the Life out of them (забирает из него всю Жизнь). Remember that another time, all of you (помните это в следующий раз все вы). A little Consideration (небольшая Предупредительность), a little Thought for Others (маленькая Мысль о Других), makes all the difference (в этом вся разница).”

“All except me,” said Eeyore. “As Usual.” He looked round at them in his melancholy way.

I suppose none of you are sitting on a thistle by any chance?”

“I believe I am,” said Pooh. “Ow!” He got up, and looked behind him. “Yes, I was. I thought so.”

“Thank you, Pooh. If you've quite finished with it.” He moved across to Pooh's place, and began to eat.

“It doesn't do them any Good, you know, sitting on them,” he went on, as he looked up munching. “Takes all the Life out of them. Remember that another time, all of you. A little Consideration, a little Thought for Others, makes all the difference.”

As soon as he had finished his lunch Christopher Robin whispered to Rabbit (как только Кристофер Робин закончил свой обед он прошептал/что-то Кролику), and Rabbit said “Yes, yes, of course (а Кролик сказал да да конечно),” and they walked a little way up the stream together (и они вместе отошли немного выше по течению).

“I didn't want the others to hear,” said Christopher Robin (я не хочу чтобы остальные слышали сказал Кристофер Робин).

“Quite so,” said Rabbit, looking important (несомненно«вполне так сказал Кролик выглядя важно = напуская важность).

“It's—I wondered—It's only—Rabbit, I suppose you don't know (дело в том я хотел спросить только Кролик я полагаю ты не знаешь), What does the North Pole look like (Как выглядит Северный Полюс)?”

“Well,” said Rabbit, stroking his whiskers (ну сказал Кролик поглаживая/свои усы). “Now you're asking me (вот ты спрашиваешь меня).”

important [ɪm'pɔ:tənt], whisker ['wɪskə], ask [ɑ:sk]

As soon as he had finished his lunch Christopher Robin whispered to Rabbit, and Rabbit said “Yes, yes, of course,” and they walked a little way up the stream together.

“I didn't want the others to hear,” said Christopher Robin.

“Quite so,” said Rabbit, looking important.

“It's—I wondered—It's only—Rabbit, I suppose you don't know, What does the North Pole look like?”

“Well,” said Rabbit, stroking his whiskers. “Now you're asking me.”

“I did know once, only I've sort of forgotten (я когда-то знал только/я типа51 забыл; to forget — забыть; sort of — вроде как бы),” said Christopher Robin carelessly (сказал Кристофер Робин небрежно).

“It's a funny thing,” said Rabbit (забавная штука сказал Кролик), “but I've sort of forgotten too (но я тоже типа забыл), although I did know once (хотя когда-то я знал).”

“I suppose it's just a pole stuck in the ground (я полагаю это просто палка торчащая в земле; pole — столб шест жердь веха кол полюс один из двух концов оси; to stick — втыкать торчать)?”

“Sure to be a pole,” said Rabbit (наверняка палка сказал Кролик), “because of calling it a pole, and if it's a pole (потому что называется палкой = осью52, а если это палка), well, I should think it would be sticking in the ground, shouldn't you (ну я предположил бы что она торчала бы в земле не так ли), because there'd be nowhere else to stick it (потому что некуда больше было бы воткнуть ее).”

“Yes, that's what I thought (да именно так я и думал).”

“The only thing,” said Rabbit (единственное сказал Кролик), “is, where is it sticking (это где она торчит)?”

“That's what we're looking for,” said Christopher Robin (вот это мы и ищем сказал Кристофер Робин).

although [ɔ:l'ðəu], once [wʌns], only [əunlɪ]

“I did know once, only I've sort of forgotten,” said Christopher Robin carelessly.

“It's a funny thing,” said Rabbit, “but I've sort of forgotten too, although I did know once.”

“I suppose it's just a pole stuck in the ground?”

“Sure to be a pole,” said Rabbit, “because of calling it a pole, and if it's a pole, well, I should think it would be sticking in the ground, shouldn't you, because there'd be nowhere else to stick it.”

“Yes, that's what I thought.”

“The only thing,” said Rabbit, “is, where is it sticking?

“That's what we're looking for,” said Christopher Robin.

They went back to the others (они вернулись к остальным). Piglet was lying on his back, sleeping peacefully (Пятачок лежал на спине мирно спя = и мирно спал). Roo was washing his face and paws in the stream (Ру мыл свое лицо и лапы = умывался в ручье), while Kanga explained to everybody proudly (в то время как Кенга с гордостью объясняла всем) that this was the first time he had ever washed his face himself (что это в первый раз он умылся сам), and Owl was telling Kanga an Interesting Anecdote (а Филин рассказывал Кенге Интересный Анекдот) full of long words like Encyclopedia and Rhododendron (полный длинных слов таких как Энциклопедия и Рододендрон) to which Kanga wasn't listening (который Кенга не слушала).

Roo was washing his face and paws in the stream, while Kanga explained to everybody proudly that this was the first time he had ever washed his face himself, and Owl was telling Kanga an Interesting Anecdote full of long words like Encyclopedia and Rhododendron to which Kanga wasn't listening.

“I don't hold with all this washing,” grumbled Eeyore (не одобряю я все эти умывания проворчал Иа; to hold — верить одобрять). “This modern Behind-the-ears nonsense (эту современную/мой-за-ушами чепуху). What do you think, Pooh (/а что думаешь ты Пух)?”

“Well, said Pooh, “I think— (ну сказал Пух я думаю)

But we shall never know what Pooh thought (но мы никогда не узнаем что думал Пух), for there came a sudden squeak from Roo, a splash, and a loud cry of alarm from Kanga (так как раздался неожиданный писк от Ру всплеск и громкий крик тревоги = тревожный крик от Кенги).

“So much for washing,” said Eeyore (вот вам и умывание«столь много для/в качестве умывания сказал Иа).

“Roo's fallen in!” cried Rabbit (Ру упал в/воду закричал Кролик), and he and Christopher Robin came rushing down to the rescue (и он и Кристофер Робин бросились на помощь).

“I don't hold with all this washing,” grumbled Eeyore. “This modern Behind-the-ears nonsense. What do you think, Pooh?”

But we shall never know what Pooh thought, for there came a sudden squeak from Roo, a splash, and a loud cry of alarm from Kanga.

“So much for washing,” said Eeyore.

“Roo's fallen in!” cried Rabbit, and he and Christopher Robin came rushing down to the rescue.

“Look at me swimming (посмотрите как я плаваю)!” squeaked Roo from the middle of his pool (запищал Ру из середины/своей заводи), and was hurried down a waterfall into the next pool (и поспешил вниз по водопаду = каскаду в следующую заводь).

“Are you all right, Roo dear (ты в порядке Ру дорогой)?” called Kanga anxiously (крикнула обеспокоенно Кенга).

“Yes!” said Roo (да сказал Ру). “Look at me sw— (посмотрите как я пл-)“ and down he went over the next waterfall into another pool (и он спустился через следующий каскад в другую заводь).

“Look at me swimming!” squeaked Roo from the middle of his pool, and was hurried down a waterfall into the next pool.

“Are you all right, Roo dear?” called Kanga anxiously.

“Yes!” said Roo. “Look at me sw—“ and down he went over the next waterfall into another pool.

Everybody was doing something to help (все делали что-то/чтобы помочь). Piglet, wide awake suddenly, was jumping up and down and making “Oo, I say” noises (Пятачок внезапно полностью проснувшийся прыгал и издавал звуки у эй); Owl was explaining that in a case of Sudden and Temporary Immersion the Important Thing was to keep the Head Above Water (Филин растолковывал что в случае Неожиданного и Временного Погружения Важно держать Голову Над Водой); Kanga was jumping along the bank, saying (Кенга прыгала по берегу спрашивая) “Are you sure you're all right, Roo dear (ты уверен что у тебя все в порядке Ру дорогой)?” to which Roo, from whatever pool he was in at the moment (на что Ру из какой бы то ни было заводи в/которой он оказывался в данный момент), was answering “Look at me swimming (отвечал посмотрите как я плаваю)!” Eeyore had turned round and hung his tail over the first pool into which Roo fell (Иа повернулся/задом к воде и свесил свой хвост над первой заводью в которую упал Ру), and with his back to the accident was grumbling quietly to himself, and saying (и/сидя спиной к происходящему ворчал тихо про себя и говорил), “All this washing (вот все это умывание); but catch on to my tail, little Roo (но хватайся за мой хвост маленький Ру), and you'll be all right (и с тобой все будет хорошо)”; and,Christopher Robin and Rabbit came hurrying past Eeyore (а Кристофер Робин и Кролик спешили мимо Иа), and were calling out to the others in front of them (и кричали другим перед ними).

Everybody was doing something to help. Piglet, wide awake suddenly, was jumping up and down and making “Oo, I say” noises; Owl was explaining that in a case of Sudden and Temporary Immersion the Important Thing was to keep the Head Above Water; Kanga was jumping along the bank, saying “Are you sure you're all right, Roo dear?” to which Roo, from whatever pool he was in at the moment, was answering “Look at me swimming!” Eeyore had turned round and hung his tail over the first pool into which Roo fell, and with his back to the accident was grumbling quietly to himself, and saying, “All this washing; but catch on to my tail, little Roo, and you'll be all right”; and,Christopher Robin and Rabbit came hurrying past Eeyore, and were calling out to the others in front of them.

“All right, Roo, I'm coming (все в порядке Ру я иду),” called Christopher Robin (крикнул Кристофер Робин).

“Get something across the stream lower down (возьмите что-нибудь чтобы опустить поперек ручья), some of you fellows (кто-нибудь из вас ребята),” called Rabbit (крикнул Кролик).

But Pooh was getting something (а Пух что-то нес). Two pools below Roo he was standing with a long pole in his paws (на две заводи ниже Ру он стоял с длинным шестом в лапах), and Kanga came up and took one end of it (а Кенга подошла = подбежала и схватилась за один его конец), and between them they held it across the lower part of the pool (и между ними они держали его через нижнюю часть заводи = они опустили его поперек нижней части заводи); and Roo, still bubbling proudly (а Ру все еще гордо булькающего; bubble — пузырек; to bubble — кипеть пузыриться подниматься пузырьками), “Look at me swimming (посмотрите как я плаваю),” drifted up against it, and climbed out (выплыл несомый течением на него«продрейфовал к нему и он выкарабкался/из воды/).

lower ['ləuə], below [bɪ'ləu], against [ə'genst]

“All right, Roo, I'm coming,” called Christopher Robin.

“Get something across the stream lower down, some of you fellows,” called Rabbit.

But Pooh was getting something. Two pools below Roo he was standing with a long pole in his paws, and Kanga came up and took one end of it, and between them they held it across the lower part of the pool; and Roo, still bubbling proudly, “Look at me swimming,” drifted up against it, and climbed out.

“Did you see me swimming (вы видели как я плавал)?” squeaked Roo excitedly (возбужденно пищал Ру), while Kanga scolded him and rubbed him down (пока Кенга бранила/его и вытирала его). “Pooh, did you see me swimming (Пух ты видел как я плавал)? That's called swimming, what I was doing (то что я делал называется плавать). Rabbit, did you see what I was doing (Кролик ты видел что я делал)? Swimming (плавал). Hallo, Piglet (эй Пятачок)! I say, Piglet (послушай Пятачок; I say — послушай эй)! What do you think I was doing (что ты думаешь я делал)! Swimming (плавал)! Christopher Robin, did you see me— (Кристофер Робин ты видел как я)

But Christopher Robin wasn't listening (но Кристофер Робин не слушал). He was looking at Pooh (он смотрел на Пуха).

“Pooh,” he said (Пух сказал он), “where did you find that pole (где ты нашел эту ось)?”

Pooh looked at the pole in his hands (Пух посмотрел на шест в своих руках).

“I just found it,” he said (я просто нашел его). “I thought it ought to be useful (я подумал/что он должен пригодиться). I just picked it up (я просто подобрал его).”

“Pooh,” said Christopher Robin solemnly (Пух сказал Кристофер Робин торжественно), “the Expedition is over (Экспедиция завершена). You have found the North Pole (ты нашел Северный Полюс53)!”

“Oh!” said Pooh (ах сказал Пух).

scold [skəuld], what [wɔt], found [faund]

“Did you see me swimming?” squeaked Roo excitedly, while Kanga scolded him and rubbed him down. “Pooh, did you see me swimming? That's called swimming, what I was doing. Rabbit, did you see what I was doing? Swimming. Hallo, Piglet! I say, Piglet! What do you think I was doing! Swimming! Christopher Robin, did you see me—”

But Christopher Robin wasn't listening. He was looking at Pooh.

“Pooh,” he said, “where did you find that pole?”

Pooh looked at the pole in his hands.

“I just found it,” he said. “I thought it ought to be useful. I just picked it up.”

“Pooh,” said Christopher Robin solemnly, “the Expedition is over. You have found the North Pole!”

“Oh!” said Pooh.

Eeyore was sitting with his tail in the water (Иа сидел с/его хвостом = опустив хвост в воду) when they all got back to him (когда они все вернулись к нему).

“Tell Roo to be quick, somebody,” he said (кто-нибудь скажите Ру пусть поторопится сказал он). “My tail's getting cold (мой хвост замерзает). I don't want to mention it (я не хочу упоминать об этом), but I just mention it (но я просто упоминаю об этом). I don't want to complain, but there it is (я не хочу жаловаться но так уж получается). My tail's cold (моему хвосту холодно).”

“Here I am!” squeaked Roo (вот я запищал Ру).

“Oh, there you are (а вот ты где).”

“Did you see me swimming (ты видел как я плавал)?”

Eeyore took his tail out of the water (Иа вытащил/свой хвост из воды), and swished it from side to side (и помахал им из стороны в сторону).

tail [teɪl], cold [kəuld], mention ['menʃn]

Eeyore was sitting with his tail in the water when they all got back to him.

“Tell Roo to be quick, somebody,” he said. “My tail's getting cold. I don't want to mention it, but I just mention it. I don't want to complain, but there it is. My tail's cold.”

“Here I am!” squeaked Roo.

“Oh, there you are.”

“Did you see me swimming?”

Eeyore took his tail out of the water, and swished it from side to side.

“As I expected,” he said (как я и ожидал сказал он). “Lost all feeling (потерял всякую чувствительность). Numbed it (он окоченел«окоченел его отморозил его»; numb — онемелый неподвижный окоченелый/от холода/). That's what it's done (именно это и случилось). Numbed it (окоченел). Well, as long as nobody minds, I suppose it's all right (ну поскольку никто/не возражает я полагаю/что все в порядке).”

“Poor old Eeyore (бедный старый Иа)! I'll dry it for you,” said Christopher Robin (я вытру его тебе сказал Кристофер Робин), and he took out his handkerchief and rubbed it up (и он вытащил носовой платок и растер его).

“Thank you, Christopher Robin (спасибо Кристофер Робин). You're the only one who seems to understand about tails (ты единственный кто кажется понимает что-то в хвостах). They don't think (они не думают) —that's what's the matter with some of these others (вот в чем проблема с некоторыми из этих остальных). They've no imagination (у них нет воображения). A tail isn't a tail to them (хвост для них не хвост), it's just a Little Bit Extra at the back (это просто Маленький Дополнительный Кусочек Еще Немножко спины).”

numb [nʌm], poor [puə], imagination [ɪ"mædʒɪ'neɪʃn]

“As I expected,” he said. “Lost all feeling. Numbed it. That's what it's done. Numbed it. Well, as long as nobody minds, I suppose it's all right.”

“Poor old Eeyore! I'll dry it for you,” said Christopher Robin, and he took out his handkerchief and rubbed it up.

“Thank you, Christopher Robin. You're the only one who seems to understand about tails. They don't think—that's what's the matter with some of these others. They've no imagination. A tail isn't a tail to them, it's just a Little Bit Extra at the back.”

“Never mind, Eeyore,” said Christopher Robin (не беда Иа сказал Кристофер Робин), rubbing his hardest (растирая/его изо всех сил). “Is that better (так лучше)?”

“It's feeling more like a tail perhaps (он ощущается/теперь больше как хвост возможно). It Belongs again (он снова Принадлежит/мне/ = я снова ощущаю его Принадлежность ко мне), if you know what I mean (если ты знаешь = понимаешь, что я имею в виду).”

“Hullo, Eeyore,” said Pooh (привет Иа сказал Пух), coming up to them with his pole (подойдя к ним со своей осью).

“Hullo, Pooh (привет Пух). Thank you for asking (спасибо/что спросил), but I shall be able to use it again in a day or two (но я смогу им пользоваться снова через день или два).”

“Use what?” said Pooh (пользоваться чем спросил Пух).

“What we are talking about (тем о чем мы говорим).”

“I wasn't talking about anything (я ни о чем не говорил),” said Pooh, looking puzzled (сказал Пух с озадаченным видом«выглядя озадаченно»).

“Never mind, Eeyore,” said Christopher Robin, rubbing his hardest. “Is that better?”

“It's feeling more like a tail perhaps. It Belongs again, if you know what I mean.”

“Hullo, Eeyore,” said Pooh, coming up to them with his pole.

“Hullo, Pooh. Thank you for asking, but I shall be able to use it again in a day or two.”

“Use what?” said Pooh.

“What we are talking about.”

“I wasn't talking about anything,” said Pooh, looking puzzled.

“My mistake again (моя ошибка снова = я снова ошибся). I thought you were saying (я думал ты говоришь) how sorry you were about my tail (как ты сожалеешь о моем хвосте), being all numb, and could you do anything to help (что он совершенно окоченелый и не мог бы ты чем-нибудь помочь)?”

“No,” said Pooh (нет сказал Пух). “That wasn't me,” he said (это был не я сказал Пух). He thought for a little and then suggested helpfully (он подумал немного а потом услужливо/стремясь помочь подсказал): “Perhaps it was somebody else (может быть это был кто-то другой).”

“Well, thank him for me when you see him (ну поблагодари его от меня когда ты его увидишь).”

Pooh looked anxiously at Christopher Robin (Пух тревожно поглядел на Кристофера Робина).

being ['bi:ɪŋ], suggest [sə'dʒest], again [ə'gen]

“My mistake again. I thought you were saying how sorry you were about my tail, being all numb, and could you do anything to help?”

“No,” said Pooh. “That wasn't me,” he said. He thought for a little and then suggested helpfully: “Perhaps it was somebody else.”

“Well, thank him for me when you see him.”

Pooh looked anxiously at Christopher Robin.

“Pooh's found the North Pole (Пух нашел Северный Полюс; to find),” said Christopher Robin (сказал Кристофер Робин). “Isn't that lovely (разве это не прекрасно)?”

Pooh looked modestly down (Пух скромно посмотрел вниз = потупил взор).

“Is that it?” said Eeyore (да спросил Иа).

“Yes,” said Christopher Robin (да сказал Кристофер Робин).

“Is that what we were looking for (это то что мы искали; to look for smth. — искать что-либо)?”

“Yes,” said Pooh (да сказал Пух).

“Oh!” said Eeyore (ах сказал Иа). “Well, anyhow—it didn't rain,” he said (ну во всяком случае не было дождя сказал он).

lovely ['lʌvlɪ], modestly ['mɔdɪstlɪ], anyhow ['enɪhau]

“Pooh's found the North Pole,” said Christopher Robin. “Isn't that lovely?”

Pooh looked modestly down.

“Is that it?” said Eeyore.

“Yes,” said Christopher Robin.

“Is that what we were looking for?”

“Yes,” said Pooh.

“Oh!” said Eeyore. “Well, anyhow—it didn't rain,” he said.

They stuck the pole in the ground (они воткнули шест в землю), and Christopher Robin tied a message on to it (а Кристофер Робин привязал к нему сообщение):

NORTH POLE (Северный Полюс)

DICSOVERED BY POOH (открыт/ый Пухом)

POOH FOUND IT (Пух нашел его).

Then they all went home again (потом они все пошли опять домой). And I think, but I am not quite sure (и мне кажется но я не совсем уверен), that Roo had a hot bath and went straight to bed (что Ру принял горячую ванну и лег сразу в постель). But Pooh went back to his own house (а Пух вернулся в свой собственный дом), and feeling very proud of what he had done (и чувствуя себя очень гордым = и испытывая большую гордость от того что он совершил), had a little something to revive himself (принял немного кой-чего/чтобы подкрепиться; to revive — оживить).

bath [bɑ:θ], done [dʌn], revive [rɪ'vaɪv]

They stuck the pole in the ground, and Christopher Robin tied a message on to it:

NORTH POLE

DICSOVERED BY POOH

POOH FOUND IT.

Then they all went home again. And I think, but I am not quite sure, that Roo had a hot bath and went straight to bed. But Pooh went back to his own house, and feeling very proud of what he had done, had a little something to revive himself.
