Hola, ¿me pueden hechar una mano con un fragmento poético en inglés antiguo?

If of thy mortal goods thou art bereft
And from thy slender store
Two loaves alone to thee are left
Sell one, and with the dole
Buy hyacinths to feed thy soul.

Valoro el obsequio de tu tiempo.

    If your entire possessions consist of two loaves of bread,
    sell ONE, and use the money to buy flowers to stir your soul.

    Got the meanning, thanks GiggLiden
    Always glad to help a fellow lover of good poetry!
    :)

    PS: "meaning" has only ONE "n." Save the other one for future use!
