The Goose Girl was reading the Trilogy today. I spotted the omnibus, thought it was, confirmed by seeing the spine as she walked past. I grinned.

Her job got done way early. She got in at 3, and was sent home because the job closed at 4:30.

"So long, and thanks for all the interviews!" I called.

She cackled.

It's good to be fen.
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?
