“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Just in case the critters do not understand metta in English -

Virūpakkhehi me mettaṃ mettaṃ erāpathehi me,
Chabyāputtehi me mettaṃ mettaṃ kaṇhāgotamakehi ca.

Apādakehi me mettaṃ mettaṃ dipādakehi me,
catuppadehi me mettaṃ mettaṃ bahuppadehi me.

Mā maṃ apādako hiṃsi mā maṃ hiṃsi dipādako,
Mā maṃ catuppado hiṃsi mā maṃ hiṃsi bahuppado.

Sabbe sattā sabbe pāṇā sabbe bhūtā ca kevalā,
Sabbe bhadrāni passantu mā kañci pāpamāgamā.

Appamāṇo buddho. Appamāṇo dhammo. Appamāṇo saṅgho. Pamāṇavantāni siriṃsapāni ahivicchikā satapadī uṇṇānābhi sarabū mūsikā. Katā me rakkhā. Katā me parittā. Paṭikkamantu bhūtāni. So'haṃ namo bhagavato. Namo sattannaṃ sammāsambuddhānanti.

Here's the Pali/English version from the Dhammayut Order in the United States of America Chanting Guide:

The other protective verses there might also be of interest...
