I've had good luck with DParser for Python 
(; in fact, it 
might even be a very easy translation from a premade Verilog grammar to 
a DParser grammar (Google search if you don't have BNF for Verilog already).

Two caevats come to mind, though; documentation isn't as newbie-friendly 
as it could be, and DParser requires a binary library -- it's not 
Python-only, which might matter for your project.
