A Place That Can Boast Such Beauty

A text written in Latin on a railing
in the Valkhof Park in Nijmegen asks:

QUEM DABIS HAEC POSSIT QUI DARE CUNCTA LOCUM:

Can you tell me of a place
that can boast such beauty?

For centuries they might have thought
that it was this spot
that overlooks the river Waal
But they didn’t know then
that the place that can boast
the greatest beauty
is located in your heart
