Verse paragraphs are stanzas with no regular number of lines or groups of lines that make up units of sense. They are usually separated by blank lines. It stands for a group of lines in a poem that form a rhetorical unit similar to that of a prose paragraph. Milton's 'Paradise Lost and Wordsworth's 'The Prelude' consist of verse paragraphs. Verse paragraphs are frequently used in blank verse and in free verse.
