deutsch:

Ein anderes typisches Mittel ist die Verwendung konkreter Dinge oder Vorstellungsbereiche wie etwa Frühling und Herbst oder Tau als Metaphern der Vergänglichkeit. Im Falle des Taus, der ja sonst auch sexuelle Konnotationen hat oder auf die Gunst des Herrschers verweisen kann, ist die Gleichsetzung mit Vergänglichkeit an dieser Stelle offensichtlich. Zudem ist die Tau-Metapher ein Verweis auf frühere Verwendungen solcher Metaphorik, wie etwa in dem vermutlich in das 3. Jh. v. Chr. zu datierenden anonymen Gedicht:
Tau auf wilder Zwiebel
Wie leicht er trocknet!
Wenn der Tau auch getrocknet ist, am nächsten Morgen fällt er neu.
Wenn einer tot ist und fortgegangen, wann wird er heimkehren?



English:

After a moment of searching, she found what she wanted - a crack just big enough for a six-inch girl to squeeze through. She turned and called back to the bloodhound.
"Bayard! The hat!"
Bayard picked up the hat in his teeth. Turning in circles like a discus thrower, he released the hat, and it and the that sailed high across the moat and over the wall.
Alice wriggled through the crack in the wall. For a moment she was afraid she'd get stuck - yet another unpleasant way to die- but at last she tumbled out on the other side and found herself in a garden.

That one is kind of hard, since there is like, a mountain of books nearby.
*blindly grabs one*

"These colemongers are clever, to let their work trickle in through the gambling dens," my lord said.
"Their copy of the silver noble stamp is very good," Nestor added. He came back to the table and set three silver coles befor the Watch Commanders and Lord Gershom. All had been cut across one face to show the brass underneath. The Nobles picked the coles up to examine them. "We seem to have a similar problem in Port Caynn," Nestor explained as he took his seat.
