Show and Tell, Week 3 - A Lovely Sentence

Chekhov, you're the man. Even though you wrote this sentence in Russian and it's been translated by someone else, it's still a pretty good one.
"From early morning the sky had been overcast with clouds; the day was still, cool, and wearisome, as usual on grey, dull days when the clouds hang low over the fields and it looks like rain, which never comes" ("Gooseberries", 1898).

That is beautiful. I've seen days like that. A hundred years later, I still relate.
