the Lord of Love (quote of the moment)

The Lord of Love is before and behind. He extends to the right and to the left. He extends above; he extends below. There is here but the Lord of Love. He alone is; in truth, he alone is.

--Mandaka Upanishad
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?

-- "The Question Song", Anne McCaffrey
