Abstract The system of division within the verse by the accents has been investigated and described, but the system of division into verses has never been described. This article focuses on the system of dividing lists into verses. A list may be divided into verses containing one, two or three items. The decision on the number of items to be included in a given verse depends on the length of the items. Thus, the first step is to determine the exact length of the items suitable for each arrangement. The next step is to describe the exact method of division when the list cannot be evenly divided.
