What <verse> does is called a 'hanging indent'. If the line is longer than a screen width, it does wrap, like this:

Code:
                    | end of page
text
text
text text really long
     amount of text
text
It's designed for song lyrics, and stuff. To get what you want (assuming normal text is indented) you need to add <justified></justified> to the first line, and leave the others alone. If you want all the text centered, you could add a <blockquote> around it as well, like this:

Code:
<blockquote>
<justified>black against</justified>
     white sky
     from dropped tree
</blockquote>
Hope this helps!
