Laffy Taffy has nothing on the Lunatic.

So why did the busy mother brew up an infusion of eucalyptus leaves to drink with her daughter while spending a rare afternoon of uninterrupted time with her daughter?

She wanted it to be koala-tea time.
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?
