Innocence, obnoxiousness...

Really, children shouldn't pester perfect strangers who are obviously busy...

I'm so very glad that the Little Fayoumis has been well-trained to not pester adults who are obviously busy. Tell his life's story to perfect strangers, on the other hand... (He insists on introducing himself to bank tellers. It could be worse...)
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?
