This [[Cantos of the Lay of Leithian|Canto]] speaks of [[Lúthien Tinúviel]] after the departure of [[Beren Erchamion|Beren]] and how she went to her mother [[Melian]] and friend [[Daeron|Dairon]], begging for aid, from the first foresight and from the second music.  Melian said that Beren was in the dungeons of [[Sauron|Thû]], and Dairon refused to play any music.  A second time Dairon betrayed her, this time out of love, to her father [[Thingol]], who placed her in a guarded treehouse.  But by magic she grew out her hair and made a robe and rope of it "a magic dress/that all was drenched in drowsiness".  Lowering the rope she put to sleep her guards and escaped.
