    Why Members Leave

    Did you make him feel welcome?
    Did you hold out your hand?
    Did you listen to his troubles?
    With him, did you stand?

    Are the secrets which you shared
    Ones that will keep him coming back?
    Or are they merely empty forms
    And its brotherhood they lack?

    Was there something for him to find
    Here among his Brothers and friends?
    Or did he look in vain
    For those on whom he could depend?

    Was this a place for him to shine
    To be with others of his kind?
    With true fellows of the craft,

    Was that there for him to find?

    If all these things are here
    Nothing will keep him away.
    If not, I doubt that anyone
    Can persuade him to stay.
