I am setting a book of poetry that is one long continuous poem. Some of the verses have quite short line lengths. Others have quite long line lengths. Is there a way to have LaTeX find an optimal horizontal position for the lines on any given page rather than for the individual verse?
There are no lines long enough that they need to be broken. Ideally the text box would be centred, but a rough approximation of centre would also suffice.
I have used both memoir's own poetry functions often, and I have also used the verse package. Neither of these offer an option to set lines page by page rather than verse by verse. I have no minimum working example at the moment, because I'm not even sure how to approach the problem.
