What is Lovely

We return to our permanent dwellings, our daily lives
Sukkot passes by and another year begins
with chilly air and a feeling of fall
and light early morning rain that doesn't last long enough to rinse the dust off the window,
but still it rains.
The first day of class is tomorrow (today),
what should I wear?

I cannot be awake for nothing looks to me as it did before,
Or else I am awake for the first time, and all before was a mean sleep.

(Walt Whitman)
