Hi,

I need to typeset two poems side by side. Usually, I use the tabulate environment for typesetting parallel texts. However, for poems this does not quite work as tabulate does not seem to allow blanks between the stanzas. See MWE below. Am I missing someting? Is there a better way to achieve this?

Best,
Denis

%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
\startbuffer[lines]
\startlines[after={\blank}]
this
is
a
poem

with
two
stanzas
\stoplines
\stopbuffer

\starttext

With a blank between the stanzas:
\getbuffer[lines]

Without a blank between the stanzas:
\starttabulate[|p|p|]
\NC \getbuffer[lines]
\NC \getbuffer[lines]
\NC\NR
\stoptabulate
\stoptext
%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%%
