Im sure depending on the quality it will do quite well. I have one and it is featured.
I think all poems are kind of difficult to get views on because not that many people click on them or they get their attention. My poem hubs don't really get views anymore but I have only posted three I believe. It really depends on what audience sees your poetry.
Generally I don't think poetry does well. You have to think of it this way - when you want info on a particular subject, you might Google it. Say you want to know about dog training or meat loaf recipes. You Google it and get a lot of responses including Hubs here at Hubpages.
But few people sit around and think about wanting to find poetry on a particular subject so it is unlikely people outside Hubpages are going to find your poetry. I post a lot of poetry here along with other hubs. I don't do it for money, but for the joy of writing it and having a few readers.
My informative hubs, craft hubs and recipes so much better.
I have some poem hubs that do very well. I know I won't earn much with them but it is curiously satisfying to have 30 odd viewers a day for bird poems, for example. I don't know if this is exceptional, or poor, or what. I work hard at my poetry, have done for years, and HubPages allows me the chance to add an image if I need to, and link to other related material.
I have other more technical poetry hubs and these are visited primarily by students I think.
So, if your question is about traffic then some poetry hubs can do well,relatively speaking. Poetry won't earn heaps of cash but it will give the poet quiet satisfaction knowing that their work is being read and hopefully,enjoyed.
In general, not very well. But I've edited some poetry hubs by adding topical text as lead-ins, re-arranged images, tweaked titles, added polls, and changed topic categories. I also marketed more on twitter, emails, facebook. It has helped to revive some idled poems and increase traffic.

I see that they have a pet site and fashion stuff and such. I have my own domain and I would like to use it, but have Hub Pages host it as it is doing now. I don't think forwarding/masking will be a good option, because...

I have had a few poems receive non-featured status. I've been able to revive them by adding a couple of text paragraphs to expound on the topic of the poem while maintaining the integrity of the poem. It lengthens the...

In the past few days my traffic had dropped to 1/3 of what it was. Most of it lost from Google. Besides the latest Panda update, which helped some and hurt others, I am wondering if a change that HubPages just...
