Blast from the past

So what do you know, digitalambience IMs me out of the blue last night. We caught up on old times a bit. Very unexpected. We hadn't talked in years -- I think I crashed into him a few times after he was married but that was it.

And just a few minutes before that, I searched down the college DADA instructor on Facebook because IRC or Twitter had reminded me. It's not a common name, and it was the right location, and it was him! Hooray!
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?
