According to the speaker in" The World Is Too Much With Us," for what have we "given our heart away"?

The speaker is saying that we have given our hearts away to material things — we have given it away so we can have things.  Having things is a “sordid boon” because it seems like a good thing, but it really is very bad for us — it demeans us.To figure this out, look at the lines before the ones you cite.  He talks there about how it is in “getting and spending” that we give ourselves away.  All we care about is making and spending money.This is bad for us because it robs us of our humanity.
