I've been leaking at the eyes off and on all day. This is hitting me harder than one might have thought, quite a bit because while I may have never met him, I have read him. I grew up reading him. His friends are all around me in blogspace, grieving.

We shall shout your words to Heaven in song, that we might reach you, for you have ascended already.
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?
