You may try redefining (in your document's preamble) the command  
generating, in verse.sty, the line numbers, something like:

   \ifhmode \unskip\else \@nolnerr\fi
   \incr at vsline
     \@vsifbang{\@ifnextchar[ {\@vsicentercr}{}}{\@vsxcentercr}}}}

(\getmodulo at vs is the command calling \thepeomline). Or you may also  

\renewcommand{\getmodulo at vs}{{\@tempcnta\c at poemline\small\normalfont
   \ifnum\c at modulo@vs<\@ne    % no line numbers
     \ifnum\c at modulo@vs<\tw@  % number every line
       \divide\@tempcnta\c at modulo@vs
       \multiply\@tempcnta\c at modulo@vs
       \ifnum\@tempcnta=\c at poemline\thepoemline\fi

With no guarantee, as I've never used verse.sty.
