Did you one of Peter Wilson's various packages? memoir does itself does
The ArabTeX package includes code for doing poetry; perhaps you could
just adapt it for XeLaTeX.
My guess, though, is that you might have some difficulty getting
automatic inter-letter stretching so that all lines end up being the
same length. Mellel does this. I'm not sure what they use to do it;
perhaps the ARABIC TATWEEL or a shorter version of it. Hey, this sounds
like a fun macro for someone [else] to write. :-)
