A Poem: A Lonely Hubbers Lament.

Updated on December 31, 2015

A Hubbers Lament.


I sometimes wonder why I try, when all to often I'm left to sigh. I do my best, I think I rest but sometimes feel they're not impressed.

I feel the pain, I feel the hunger, I sometimes wish that I were younger. A sharper mind, a quicker wit maybe that is some of it.

I'm slower now I'll give you that, words used to fly out of my hat, no longer though it seems to me I have to struggle frequently.

'Twas in the past when I'd sit down and rattle off the pages, I sit here now and realise I've not done that for ages.

I sit here now and as I ponder, I think of pages filled with wonder. Is everyone the same as me feeling low and unhappy.

What do I do I want to know, when other hubbers treat me so. I sit forlorn as I lament why all my readers don't comment.

So help me please my fellow scribes don't let the tear drops reach my eyes. When the answer I have found, be assured I'll pass it round.

A Poem: The Office.

Poem: Last Thoughts of an Old Man.

      Yikes! That was a slap on my face Albion (Graham) Was away due to Sandy and traveling, and somehow I lost track. But Your words were heard and I almost felt from my chair. A direct message to all of us! Enjoy your day, and thanks for smiling! :]

      Chin up, Graham! I don't know if it's the last month or two of HubPages' struggle with Google or what, but it does feel like some of the wind has gone out of the sails. It also seems that CPM has dropped, but maybe that's just my niche. And all the changes that are going on-- but things may be changing a little for the better. Hope I'm not just whistling in the dark. Hang in there. That's what I tell myself, anyway.

      Well I'm here my friend; I'm always interested in your hubs; time prevents me from reading as many as I would like to, but I am in your corner.

      Well done my friend! Your stories of history and human sacrifice are the types of stories we need more of. Fewer recipes and more quality writing, the kind of which you do each and every time.

      Hiya Albion lad, I readily identify with your lament - I've been away for a while and am now wondering what it's all about. I have to admit though, I detected a Lancashire, tongue-in-cheek approach to your poem - (as a kid I used to recite Albert and the Lion) Anyway, stick at it, your hubs are fascinating and I for one want more. Cheers...

      Hello Graham, I think a number of us share your feeling and your pain and I'm one of them. I haven't been around very long on Hubpages, but still, I can feel the decline too. Being naturally optimistic, I would like to think that someone, somewhere, is going to do the right thing at some point. In the meantime, let's keep writing something for the benefit of our followers. Tomorrow might be a better day! And when the crowds return, there'll be more for them to read...

      Hiya Maj. Thanks for your comments. You were correct, this was a tongue in cheek approach to a subject close to all our hearts. 'Albert and the Lion' now there's a wonderful poem, of course it has to be read by the late and great, Stanley Holloway.

      Hi Graham.

      I certainly can understand your frustration.

      Although I get between 80/100 emails a day, that doesn't mean they are all from HP hubbers.

      Sometimes on HP my views drop as low as 6, but generally they hang around 20/30 still not a lot.

      I was disillusioned and frustrated and even wrote a hub about my predicament. I survived and now just get on with doing my thing.

      Hang on in there Graham.

      I love your poem and how many rhymes you have found for each stanza. I'm probably guilty of just taking a peek quite often and then clicking on my choice rather than commenting. As I grow older I find I'm slower and cannot find the time to comment on all, but I usually read them - and enjoy them, too, so do keep it up.

      Rachael C. 4 years ago from That little rambunctious spot in the back of your mind :)

      Well, I'm new to your hubs, but I must indeed comment on this one. :)

      This is a lovely poem--it sums up the feelings of a lonely hubber perfectly. While I've never wished to be younger because I am considered young (although age is but a number, right? Right?), I often wondered, when I was first publishing here, if my 'old soul' was too serious most of the time and scaring off my readers, hehe.

      Now, though, I'm a little more secure in my own writing and abilities--so, while a sweet comment is quite appreciated, I can keep right on going regardless of whether I get some or not.

      Thank you, though, your very creative poem reminded me of this!

      Voted up; thanks for the lovely read. :) --Rachael

      P.S. Sorry for the long comment, heehee.

      I got behind over our Thanksgiving holiday, but appreciated knowing it's not just me feeling like writing Hubs right now is about like trying to run in sand. Also appreciated your mention of Stanley Holloway; we have a record of his readings, though being from the American Southwest, I had to listen to it 3 or 4 times before I could understand it at all!

      Because I am new to hubbing I am, at the moment, just reading other hubs and trying to assess the type of writing usually found on this site. It is good to find a fellow countryman and someone of my own generation giving hubpages a try. Your poem is beautiful and sadly reflects the heartbreak that our generation has to face. The odd thing though, is that sadness and bereavement does not shatter us to the roots any longer. We have a deeper acceptance of the inevitable, we pick ourselves up, and know, that at our age, we will not be left alone on this planet forever without our loved ones. Having said that, I would like you to know that I am not a hopeless, morbid case. On the contrary, I am very active, and I enjoy life. I hope to read more of your work on Hubpages.

      Hallo, Old Albion

      You're quite right, I haven't even written my profile yet, how stupid. That is probably because I have been on the outside looking in trying to assess the type of hubs that are usual and accepted here. Well, this afternoon I wrote two hubs for uploading. Be patient, I have, at the moment , no idea how to upload, I have got to study the process. I think you are supposed to include a few items to earn some money as well - oh dear - why is life so complicated?

A box will come to the bottom of your hub, fill it in and the products will come on automatically. I cannot help with Photos / videos, I cannot work them out myself yet.

      You are not alone old albion! I don't know about other hubbers, but I also feel it is such an encouragement when people take the time to comment. I try to do that with each and every hub I read. I probably have an 80% comment rate on hubs I read. But going according to comment rates on our own hubs, I am sure we all find it to be a very low comment rate. All writers need their readers responses!!!!! Great write. God Bless. voted up, awesome and useful. shared too.

      I can't imagine that you're not being followed and read, Graham. Your work is superb!

      One wonders about the ebb and flow, the scores and all that at times, but, honestly, I was never in the limelight, never had shared my thousands of poems with anyone much before I joined HP and didn't really intend to share them here. So I've been more surprised than anything, that anyone liked my writing or commented at all. It wasn't so much a matter of low expectations as of NO expectations. haha.

      If I didn't intend to share, then why did I join, you ask? Only because a friend from an old-style chat group, whose nick here was/is Merlin Fraser, had written a book and had discovered HP and thought I might like it too, since I'd written voraciously in the group discussions.

      But I entered so tentatively that I didn't publish anything here for ages and only gave my website link as my 'profile', saying it was all there if interested. But my friend had met a friend here, DaGreek, and obviously had recommended me to him, so he became my first follower and fan, even though I'd not published a word. I guess it was fate, because he told his followers about me, obviously, - soon I was amazed that people were supportive when I began to write and post some hubs. It was awhile before I shared any poetry, but when that began, I began to have what I might call the most real comments about my work. I was so delighted then that I visited others' hubs and commented with sincere enthusiasm. I even wrote one of my earliest hubs about interacting with other Hubbers.

      I didn't even think of it as being for reciprocation. It seemed to be how it was here: - mutually sharing and mutually gratifying. I still feel that way. It's a spontaneous response to others with whom we share so much in common: - being fellow writers and being human!

      So don't be discouraged at all. You know you're good and many others do, as well, Graham !

      I see you wrote this about two years ago; I hope things are looking up for you now. I made the big mistake of deleting many of my Hubs to post them on the infamous Bubblews site. Big mistake! So now I'm trying to build my Hub library back.

      I hope 2015 will be a good year for you!

      This is very witty, and thoughtful too. You seem to have a way with words, Graham, and certainly have not unimpressive! So glad to meet you on HubPages, a great site for finding fellow authors. Wishing you many more years of success on HP!

      Graham,

      I can certainly relate. HP is such a wonderful space, and there are so many who really seem to excel at optimum pace. Regardless, this piece is priceless. Up and Shared.
