Feeling like nobody loves you? Well, yes, that may be true, but you can't really be sure now, can you? Of course, whether loved or not, you're still feeling blue. So where should you turn?

Try some poetry, the age-old salver of souls. But this is the digital age, so not just any sonnet worth a sou will do. Instead, take this quiz which, by answering 10 short questions, will serve you up the appropriate poem for your monumental malaise.

(When I took the quiz, I was plugged into Lord Byron's "When We Two Parted." I don't think of myself as a 19th century romantic, but the poem is terrific. And I have to admit, they got the century right.)
