Hi Eric and all,

Thank you for your comments.

Indeed, optical centering is the correct typographic representation for
poetry and poetry quotes. There would only be a couple exceptions: a)
Certain types of avant-garde poetry (whose representation on paper is
usually freer) and b) those poems whose verses spill over the margins
and span several lines (in such case, the attribute :versewidth would
have to take the value \textwidth, and then the verse package takes care
of adjusting the overflowing part of the verses).

Here I have uploaded two very illustrative examples of optical
centering, two pages from a Tolkien book (/The Monsters and the Critics
and Other Essays/) and another page from a book that I recently
typesetted (here also includes verse numbering):

For now, you need to load the verse package or add it to

Best regards,
