An hour went by, and a second hour. The pale light of the short sunless day was beginning to fade, when a faint far cry arose on the still air.
1小时过去了,2小时过去了。阴暗短昼的微弱光线正逐渐消失,寂静空中升起了那微弱而遥远的嚎叫声。
It soared upward with a swift rush, till it reached its topmost note, where it persisted,palpitant and tense, and then slowly died away. It might have been a lost soul wailing, had it not been invested with a certain sad fierceness and hungry eagerness.
声音急速上升,直到其最高的音符,在那里持续着,颤抖而又拉紧着,然后慢慢地消失。它可能是一个迷失灵魂的哀嚎,带着某种绝望的悲伤和饥饿的焦虑。
The front man turned his head until his eyes met the eyes of the man behind. And then, across the narrow oblong box, each nodded to the other.
前面的人转头与后面的人进行眼神交流。穿过狭长的箱子,他们相互点头示意。

A second cry arose, piercing the silence with needle-like shrillness.
第二声哀嚎升起,针状般尖锐刺耳,穿破了寂静夜空。
Both men located the sound. It was to the rear, somewhere in the snow expanse they had just traversed.
两个人确定了声音的位置。就在附近,刚刚走过的地方。
A third and answering cry arose, also to the rear and to the left of the second cry.
第三声相应的哀嚎升起,也在附近,在第二声发出的左边位置。

"They're after us, Bill," said the man at the front.
“他们跟在我们后面,Bill”前面的男人说道。
His voice sounded hoarse and unreal, and he had spoken with apparent effort.
他的声音听起来嘶哑而不真实,并且说话时很吃力。
"Meat is scarce," answered his comrade. "I ain't seen a rabbit sign for days."
“肉是稀缺的。”他的同伴回答道。“这些天我没有看到兔子的踪迹。”
Thereafter they spoke no more, though their ears were keen for the hunting-cries that continued to rise behind them.
此后他们说话不多,耳朵凝听着他们身后持续升起的猎食者的嚎叫。

At the fall of darkness they swung the dogs into a cluster of spruce trees on the edge of the waterway and made a camp.
夜幕降临他们将狗赶进了河边一丛云杉林里并且扎了营。
The coffin, at the side of the fire, served for seat and table.
棺材放在火堆旁,既当椅子又当桌子。
The wolf-dogs, clustered on the far side of the fire, snarled and bickered among themselves, but evinced no inclination to stray off into the darkness.
狼犬聚集在火堆的另一旁,相互咆哮,但丝毫没有要跑到黑暗中去的迹象。
