The black, hairy, snub-nosed face of Vaska Denisov, and his whole short sturdy figure with the sinewy hairy hand and stumpy fingers in which he held the hilt of his naked saber, looked just as it usually did, especially toward evening when he had emptied his second bottle; he was only redder than usual.
The night was dark but starry, the road showed black in the snow that had fallen the previous day--the day of the battle.

The room was in black darkness, only a small lamp was burning inside something white.

The first to come into view was Milka, with her black markings and powerful quarters, gaining upon the wolf.
Now they drew close to the fox which began to dodge between the field in sharper and sharper curves, trailing its brush, when suddenly a strange white borzoi dashed in followed by a black one, and everything was in confusion; the borzois formed a star-shaped figure, scarcely swaying their bodies and with tails turned away from the center of the group.

A cannon ball struck the very end of the earth work by which he was standing, crumbling down the earth; a black ball flashed before his eyes and at the same instant plumped into something.
Through the smoke glimpses could be caught of something black--probably men--and at times the glint of bayonets.
"Reinforcements?" said Napoleon in a tone of stern surprise, looking at the adjutant--a handsome lad with long black curls arranged like Murat's own--as though he did not understand his words.
He remembered the meadow, the wormwood, the field, the whirling black ball, and his sudden rush of passionate love of life.

And a minute or two later the Frenchman, a black-eyed fellow with a spot on his cheek, in shirt sleeves, really did jump out of a window on the ground floor, and clapping Pierre on the shoulder ran with him into the garden.

Sometimes it seemed as if the black spaces were clouds.
Through the falling snow a purple-black and starry sky showed itself and the frost grew keener.
"This must be one of her companions," he thought, glancing at the lady in the black dress.
He glanced once at the companion's face, saw her attentive and kindly gaze fixed on him, and, as often happens when one is talking, felt somehow that this companion in the black dress was a good, kind, excellent creature who would not hinder his conversing freely with Princess Mary.
She again glanced rapidly from Pierre's face to that of the lady in the black dress and said:
Pierre looked again at the companion's pale, delicate face with its black eyes and peculiar mouth, and something near to him, long forgotten and more than sweet, looked at him from those attentive eyes.
Five minutes later little black-eyed three-year-old Natasha, her father's pet, having learned from her brother that Papa was asleep and Mamma was in the sitting room, ran to her father unobserved by her mother.
At tea all sat in their accustomed places: Nicholas beside the stove at a small table where his tea was handed to him; Milka, the old gray borzoi bitch (daughter of the first Milka), with a quite gray face and large black eyes that seemed more prominent than ever, lay on the armchair beside him; Denisov, whose curly hair, mustache, and whiskers had turned half gray, sat beside countess Mary with his general's tunic unbuttoned; Pierre sat between his wife and the old countess.
A wide porch stretched the length of the building, and above it were two balconies with black wrought iron banisters that curved out gracefully.

I have watered the red huckleberry, the sand cherry and the nettle-tree, the red pine and the black ash, the white grape and the yellow violet, which might have withered else in dry seasons.
Beside Kutuzov sat an Austrian general, in a white uniform that looked strange among the Russian black ones.
But at that instant a tall Austrian general in a greatcoat, with the order of Maria Theresa on his neck and a black bandage round his head, who had evidently just arrived, entered quickly, slamming the door.
Denisov was a small man with a red face, sparkling black eyes, and black tousled mustache and hair.
Puckering up his face though smiling, and showing his short strong teeth, he began with stubby fingers of both hands to ruffle up his thick tangled black hair.
She kissed his rough curly black head.
I knew the sky was black, because all the heat, which meant light to me, had died out of the atmosphere.
