Please see the discussion on RDFa which is suitable for
domain-specific markup: http://esw.w3.org/topic/HTML/PoeticSemantics

With RDFa you can create your own vocabulary (if none exists for
poetry) and extend other's if you need more detail.

HTML itself will never be able to incorporate elements with explicit
semantics for all domains.
