Secondly, why all the blank lines? Some people like blank lines between paragraphs; I don't personally, but that's reasonable enough. But why the blanks between every line of verse? I've never seen verse printed like that - have you?
The change in title was a mistake on my part, and quite unintentional. My apologies. I will fix it right away. I was working with A Little Princess and The Secret Garden at the same time, and got the A and The mixed up.

As for the verse, I'll fix that too. I set up a "normal" style, which has the blank line after a paragraph break, and since those lines force a break, they got the blank lines too. Easy to fix.
