This MWE shows that LaTeX can put a break after the title of a poem (written with the \poemtitle command of the verse package). Can someone advice me a way to prevent this behaviour?


\poemtitle{Poem title}

if you add the following code to your preamble, the page break should go away.

  {\poemtitlefont #1\par}\nobreak

the change was to add \nobreak after the title.

in my opinion, this is a bug, or at least a misfeature, and you would be doing a service to report it to the author of the verse package.

+1 for pointing out it should be considered as a bug! – yo' Aug 26 '12 at 18:48
Thanks, it seems to work. I've written to Will Robertson. – Francesco Endrici Aug 27 '12 at 6:33
