Don't Stand in my Light

By JacquiJay

Nor Iron Bars a Cage

To Althea, from Prison
(last stanza)

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

Richard Lovelace
