Artist's Description

“Now in his Palace of the West, Sinking to slumber, the bright Day, Like a tired monarch fann’d to rest, ‘Mid the cool airs of Evening lay; While round his couch’s golden rim The gaudy clouds, like courtiers, crept— Struggling each other’s light to dim, And catch his last smile e’er he slept.”

From ‘The Summer Fete’ (1831)

by Thomas Moore – Irish Poet (1779 –1852)

The sun sinks over the rising shoulders of the southern edge of the Dartmoor plateau behind the Rypen Clump (which sits on the northern flank of Glazegate valley near Berry Pomeroy).
