poemscol has a \poemtitlenotitle macro which according to the documentation:

"does not produce a title in the text, but sets its argument in the table of contents and in the notes. Usually you use the first line as the moral equivalent of a title."

I have a lot of unnamed poems. Is it possible to do the same action, using verse?

    Welcome to TeX.SX! Even though the intent of your question is fairly clear to me (at least that's what I think), you can make it much easier to help you if you can show us an example document that reproduces the issue (a so-called MWE). I would be happy to have a look at your problem, but I'm not keen on guessing what your document setup looks like only to find out later that I guessed wrong and wrote an answer that does not help you at all.

No, there is no equivalent in the verse package but here is something based on the general \addcontentsline macro.

% ...
% ...
\poemtitle{Poem title}
A line \\

\poemtitlenotitle{Title in ToC}
First line \\


Change the section argument in the \addcontentsline to match the indentation of other poem titles in the ToC.
