Problem with <verse> tag

Here there, I'm trying out the <verse> tag, but she's not doing what I thought.

I thought the following:
Code:
<verse>
black against<br>
white sky<br>
from dropped tree<br>
</verse>
would give me:
Code:
black against
     white sky
     from dropped tree
but instead I get all left justified:
Code:
black against
white sky
from dropped tree
If I put a normal paragraph, one with no forced line breaks(<br>), between <verse> tags then it DOES get nicely verse indented.

Is there a way to specify line breaks and get verse indenting?

Oh, I tried using <pre> </pre> tags around the poems, settling for monospaced but properly formatted, but pielrf just ignores them.
