The parent just wants a moment of quiet. But with youngsters in the home it is seldom achievable. By the time all homework is done. By the time the last load of wash is put into the dryer. By the time the last book is read and last head is kissed. The parent is too tired to enjoy the quiet, falling asleep on the divan. The half drank beer on the table grows warm. Only the cat is left to enjoy the quiet.

the storm waters rush onward
for quite a while
