To keep part of a document on one page, enclose it in @OneRow {}.
To prevent a vertical concatenation operator from becoming the
point where a column or page break occurs, append "u" (for
unbreakable) to its length, e.g. //0.37cu.

Your example code is an unholy mixture of raw Lout and symbols
from the standard packages.  You could make things a lot nicer
by using some well-chosen definitions, put into a mydefs file.
For example,

    macro @NextVerse { //0.37c }


    def @Verse
        right x
        {Times Base 12p} @Font {1.3fx lines} @Break @OneRow x

or similar.
