'Farewell, sweet earth and northern sky,
for ever blest, since here did lie
and here with lissom limbs did run,
beneath the moon, beneath the sun,
more fair than mortal tongue can tell.
Though all to ruin fell the world,
and were dissolved and backward hurled
unmade into the old abyss,
yet were its making good, for this—
the dawn, the dusk, the earth, the sea—
that Lúthien on a time should be.'

Note: No, Beren neither looks like Viggo nor like Jon or Robb from Game of Thrones. Beren looks like a character fully entitled to being suitably scruffy, as opposed to Númenoreans (who can't grow beards), and to fourteen-year-olds (whose capacity of growing beards is far less formidable than HBO would have us believe).
