Timing & Aunt-Fayoumis

Aunt-Fayoumis may or may not be coming over today. She's in town looking at a house (trailer, to replace the one that burned last October) and will drop by if she's got free time.

I hope someone's home, because I'll be at work until almost 5.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
