"Four walls do not a prison make"

I think this is in some English poem. Does anyone know in which poem and who wrote it?

Stone Walls Do Not a Prison Make

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 1618 - 1657
