I would like to drop the poem line numeration for only one poem, thus forcing it to behave differently from the general setting defined for the verse environment of my document.

Please consider the following MWE

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{verse}

\begin{document}

% Global setting
\verselinenumbersleft
\setlength{\vrightskip}{-3em}
\poemlines{2}


\poemtitle{Garden}
\begin{verse}
I used to love my garden \\
But now my love is dead \\
For I found a bachelor's button \\
In black-eyed Susan's bed.\\!
I used to love my garden \\
But now my love is dead \\
For I found a bachelor's button \\
In black-eyed Susan's bed.\\!
\end{verse}

\poemtitle{No Poem Lines for this enviroment!}
\begin{verse}
I used to love my garden \\
But now my love is dead \\
For I found a bachelor's button \\
In black-eyed Susan's bed.\\!
I used to love my garden \\
But now my love is dead \\
For I found a bachelor's button \\
In black-eyed Susan's bed.\\!
\end{verse}



\end{document}

You can set \poemlines to zero:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{verse}

\begin{document}

% Global setting
\verselinenumbersleft
\setlength{\vrightskip}{-3em}
\poemlines{2}


\poemtitle{Garden}
\begin{verse}
I used to love my garden \\
But now my love is dead \\
For I found a bachelor's button \\
In black-eyed Susan's bed.\\!
I used to love my garden \\
But now my love is dead \\
For I found a bachelor's button \\
In black-eyed Susan's bed.\\!
\end{verse}

\poemtitle{No Poem Lines for this enviroment!}
\poemlines{0}
\begin{verse}
I used to love my garden \\
But now my love is dead \\
For I found a bachelor's button \\
In black-eyed Susan's bed.\\!
I used to love my garden \\
But now my love is dead \\
For I found a bachelor's button \\
In black-eyed Susan's bed.\\!
\end{verse}

\poemtitle{Garden}
\poemlines{2}
\begin{verse}
I used to love my garden \\
But now my love is dead \\
For I found a bachelor's button \\
In black-eyed Susan's bed.\\!
I used to love my garden \\
But now my love is dead \\
For I found a bachelor's button \\
In black-eyed Susan's bed.\\!
\end{verse}

\end{document}

  • So do I need to make sure I then reset \poemlines{} to the original value? – Francesco May 22 '14 at 5:11
