A propos visuals, personally I find the backlink to the table of contents after each poem unappealing it sorts of buts in just as you sit back to reflect on the poem. It would improve matters if it was put (unobtrusively) at the head instead. But that may just be me...
Thanks, SBT. I've just uploaded version 2 - which has very few changes.

I spent hours trying to use page-break-inside:avoid work but in the end decided it was more trouble than it's worth. If I left all verses with page break avoid some of the long verses refused to load on the first page of the poem, and many of the others had ugly white space where for example two short verses were followed by one which so long it wouldn't fit on the page. I tried going through and putting page-break-inside:auto; in the verses which made the white space, but more verses needed that than had the avoid option - and I still couldn't eliminate the ugly white space.

Any comments from poets?

So the only change is to centre the backlinks in an attempt to make them less intrusive.
