    In a prose poetry book stanzas are shown by blank lines. Formats states that lines of poetry should not be broken between pages. However, when a line of prose on line 25 is too long for one line can this be continued on the next page? If I move the entire line to the next page the blank line may indicate the end of a stanza. There are other parts of the poem that has a stanza end on line 24. How should this long line on 25 be handled?



    Move the line to the next page. It is better to not split the line of poetry between pages.
