Stay Gold: Artwork Donated to Minot's CancerCare Center

My latest creation will be displayed on the walls of the newly renovated CancerCare Center in Minot. I'm donating them in honor of my aunt and uncle and to all of those who have fought the battle against this terrible disease. I also want to thank my good friend Tanya for all that she does, day in and day out, to help her patients fight the good fight.

I'm not a poet but my adaptation in regards to this art piece would be as such:

Nothing gold can stay
So take each day by day
For frolic in the sun bleached clover
Each day's warmth and light shines o'er
Passing time and struggle here
Shalt not be overcome with fear
Enjoy the moments there within
Upon the sunrise gold again

(Original Robert Frost poem)

Nothing Gold Can Stay
Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf,
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day
Nothing gold can stay.

Robert Frost
