Sleep, proper amounts of

Bedtime was 5 in the morning again. Just couldn't get to sleep. Bad Lunatic probably needed the nap, but should have stayed asleep after that...

I did get my 7 hours, though, which is sufficient for me as long as I won't be called upon to remain coherent after I get off shift.

There is something fuzzy in my room who thinks that I am not petting her enough. She is squeaking at me.
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?
