This is one of my favorite poems, and while reading Sundance's poem "Me,the ground,the sea,the sun", I remembered a familiar line in one of my favorite poems by Tolkien. This can be found in The Silmarillion, and this is a song said by Beren while he seeked for Luthien.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

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,
Lúthien Tinúviel
more fair than mortal tongue can tell.
Though all to ruin fell the world
and were dissolved and backwards hurled
unmade into the old abyss,
yet were its making good, for this--
the dusk, the dawn, the earth, the sea--
that Lúthien for a time should be.

by JRR Tolkien

Now, what do you think of this? I am just amazed every time I read this poem!
