Your Turn Epigramman!


Your turn Epigramman!

Wish I knew your mum

wish was there to thank her

for giving me a friend who just has come

to show sincere warm hand

in praising my creations and pushing

a flock of unknown fans

I can picture this man

next to mum's cat

writing his inspirations

taking his time... and laying his sleepers

to a improvised doormat

born to be the one

born to give as much as he can

epigramman, my main man!

you certainly are a star man!

dearly beloved by your hubber friends

reaching about those thousand hubs

encouraged by your mum and dad

who watch EPI day and night

this man finishes always a poem

with a big smile

holding his mum's cat

as a sign of a thing well done

and accomplished just right

EPigramman, Lake Erie

witness your grandeur

feeling the breeze with so much


just want to thank the man and making sure

you gained a friend, a fan and best of all

a brother in arms to fulfill a dream...of creating

more and more....

that's a thing I'm certain about

for sure

The Queen must've knighted you

if she knew how big was your heart

not just unconditional and smart

King Arthur would've count on you

to the most perilous adventures

that life could've set you through

You become a legend

when people decide to do it

you become an Icon

when all of us push to it

Epigramman your tears are not in vain

I know the man, I know the friend


and also BELOVED dad

but we have a mission

to help people before we reach...

the end.

that's what friends are for...! by Dozang

Dear lord de cross,

This was a wonderful gesture to such a wonderful friend of mine too. I truly love Colen. He has a heart so big and deserves all the praise that this hub will bring. I hope we can get him to thousand followers. His heart shines on Lake Erie, illuminating so bright that it reaches to Hubville... Thank you...

Did you know Sunnie, that I had to right now, and release emotions..? Ending this poem was crucial but was worth the try... He certainly showed me that..geez! there are still friends..real friends out there.

...well dear LORD that is about the nicest group of words I've ever read here at the Hub - and you know, it says as much about you as this unselfish, kind and generous person behind the pen/keyboard.

Hubpages, truly is a global village, (with the sentiments of Walt Disney, Marshall McLuhan, and the Epi-man) and as a writer's community the world has become a much smaller place. Your noble heart, my dear friend, is as big as your talent as a writer and communicator - and there is the key point, there are many many great writers out there but not all of them can communicate as well as you - this is your gift to your friends, colleagues and fellow hubbers - so in essence this tribute is as much a tribute to you too.

And yes that is my mum's cat alright - lol - possibly she is in there - reincarnated and my other best friend, my dad, would be proud of my accomplishments here, as he was a writer of 69 novels and one book of memoirs of his experiences in the world war II (but his legacy will be that of a great dad, husband and provider; you see his writing was just a hobby (he died in 1992 and missed the computer revolution) and nothing was ever published partly because of his committments to his full time job at a steel mill but still what an achievement - so you can see where I get it from .......

I will be posting this most wonderful and moving hub to my Facebook page with pride and a true sense of worth - and I have all of this with sincere thanks to you.

What an extraordinary tribute that is echoed by all who know and love this dear friend, mentor and example of what we all aspire to be ... not just his wit or talent, but to have a heart as purely unselfish as his.

I've missed this one! Going to post the link in Epi's music page right away.

The Epigramman is indeed a special friend to all of us. WE are his family. He is part of our family. We are happy when he is happy and sad when he is sad.

Colin aka Epigramman has a big heart filled with love for his fellow-man, and a generous spirit always eager to praise others. He deserves loyal friendship and support.

And you, too, Lord, deserves nothing but respect and loyal friendship. This is a beautiful tribute to our friend, the Epigramman. Voted up and pinned!

What a wonderful and creative tribute you have written to and about Epi. He is certainly one of a kind and you are too to write this. Epi has been so helpful and encouraging to so many of us here on HP, and it is good of you to take the time to thank him. Well done and well written. Voted up!

Hi there lathing, This is an old hub, but was written from our heart. Epi was already our Messiah, when we joined 15 months ago. Glad you enjoyed this one!


Epi has been supporting our community from the very beginning. the thousand and more followers give credit of his heart of Gold. Actually we as protegees learned from the teacher, to give and give back.
