Isn't it just a way of rendering the title of the poem distinctive, like
putting it in a different font, or giving it a dropped capital, or
something? If the heading were in small caps, would you transcribe it in
CAPITALS? If so, then (in this case), you should probably include the
pilcrow as part of the heading. If not, not. Or @rend="pilcrow-prefix".
One thing's for sure: it's not <fw> -- unless you have one poem per
page, and probably not even then.
