From a crumpled piece of paper found when emptying the large willow basket that's now down in the car and full of books:

Usually, "talked to answering machine" is not so literal: "Hello, R2-D2."

"I would like to ask you a few random questions."
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
