Summa Summarum! (Sum of my life)

Summa Summarum! (Sum of my life)

A small profession, a small medal
(I almost became a privy councillor once),
A little name, a little honor,
a daughter “examined”, a son in the army,
With seventy ‘ne anniversary celebration,
Articles in Brockhaus and Meyer …
Old Prussian average, Summa Summarum,
It was always about Lirum Larum.
About Lirum Larum spoon handle.
All in all – it wasn’t much.

 

(Theodor Fontane)
