lowed

'cried like a' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this defines the answer.

'miserable fellow' is the wordplay.
'miserable' becomes 'low' (synonyms).
'fellow' becomes 'ed' (I've seen this in other clues).
'low'+'ed'='LOWED'

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for lowed that I've seen before include "How Jersey communicated", "made noises like farm animals", "Mooed".)
