The End
by Arthur Conan Doyle

"Tell me what to get and I will get
it."
"Then get that picture — that — the
girl in white."
"Now tell me where you wish that I should
set it."
"Lean it where I can see it — in the
light."

"If there is more, sir, you have but to say
it." v "Then bring those letters — those
which lie apart."
"Here is the packet! Tell me where to
lay it."
"Stoop over, nurse, and lay it on
my heart."

"Thanks for your silence, nurse! You
understand me!
And now I'll try to manage for
myself.
But, as you go, I'll trouble you to hand
me
The small blue bottle there upon the
shelf.

"And so farewell! I feel that I am
keeping
The sunlight from you; may your
walk be bright!
When you return I may perchance be
sleeping,
So, ere you go, one hand-clasp
and good night!"
