- This extension is enabled by default on Fandom.
The poem extension allows for easy inclusion of poems and similar material on articles, by simply putting them between <poem></poem> tags, instead of adding <br> to the end or : to the beginning of every line.
The extension preserves wikilinks, bolding, etc. if they are present in the poem, as well as indenting lines which start with spaces.
<poem> In Xanadu did [[wikipedia:Kubla Khan|Kubla Khan]] A stately pleasure-dome decree: Where Alph, the sacred river, ran Through caverns measureless to man Down to a sunless sea. So twice five miles of fertile ground With walls and towers were girdled round: And there were gardens bright with sinuous rills, Where blossomed many an incense-bearing tree; And here were forests ancient as the hills, Enfolding sunny spots of greenery. </poem>

Styling a poem
The poem text is wrapped in a div, which has no style by default, but inherits any style or class option passed to the poem.
<poem style="border: 2px dashed #2f6fab; background-color: #eeeeee; color: #000; padding: 1em;">
When applied to the above example, the result is as follows:
Normally, the parser renders each poem in a paragraph. Occasionally this is not desired; using the compact option (
<poem compact>) suppresses newlines in the poem, to allow adjacent compact poems to blend together.
