What is the best way to number lines of poetry?

1  This is the first line
   This is the second line

5  this is the fifth

10 this is the tenth.

I can supply the number myself. I really don't want the numbers in the
margin. Instead, I want the whole poem indented right, with the
numbers left of the indent.

I have tried using tabulate, but tabulate doesn't let me control the
space between "lines," or really cells.
