I do want an extra line between paragraphs/stanzas, but it seems like what I am seeing (in Calibre and when converted to Mobi and viewed on my Kindle) is too much space. I also tried the 'remove line breaks' option in the mobi conversion in Calibre and that did not help either.

Advice?
I see Zero Styles or style sheet.
What you see is whatever the default that the browser/viewer supplies.

I am not a Poetry layout expert , and I don't use div's.
But it seems that you should set Top and bottom Margins for Stanzas..
Cruise on over to the EPUB forum on MR for Poetry Ideas.
