Yes, by using "next styles" – a feature of Paragraph Styles.
First the preparation: at the end of each line in your poem should be a hard return, meaning each line is it's own paragraph.
Then create three paragraph styles: one for each of the first three lines. Paragraph style #1 has no left indent, #2 has a small left indent, and #3 has a big indent.
Now link the styles together:
Each style now "points to" the style that should follow it.
