Stone walls do not a prison make,
Nor iron bars a cage:
Minds innocent and quiet take
That for an hermitage.
If I have freedom in my love,
And in my soul am free,
Angels alone, that soar above,
Enjoy such liberty.

– Richard Lovelace, To Althea, from Prison

FYI, I love the fact that this poem was literally written from prison!
