Old Car

Mama wrote me today to tell me that they'd taken the old Saab to the dump, along with its manuals and spare parts and all. One of the local kids is going to fix it up, which is better than having it crunched and squashed.

End of an era. The thing is 24 now.

Mama reminded me that I hadn't given a summary of the memorial. Happily, I was able to crib from my LJ summary. Here's for LJ!
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?
