There's something very reassuring in knowing that I'm not the only one this happens to.
I wrote a scene yesterday that has been in my head for years, and I was quite pleased with the prose, which whilst not flowery, did seem quite... well... literary.
Of course this moment of rapture was soon curtailed when I then looked at the previous scenes and got depressed about how mundane they looked.
Still the aim of the first draft is just to fight to the end. I can worry about 'pretty' later.
