Quality Time

Headed off to drop off the (very) belated birthday gift with my blonder half.


"I suppose if I'm going to get there by a reasonable hour, I'd better get off the phone with you."
"I suppose I'd better get off the phone with you and change into something besides pajamas."


I think I picked a good blonder half.
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?
