I am reminded of the The Ugly Duckling. Not a duck, but a swan.

Sometimes fig trees
Demand more attention
When they don’t produce
Than when they do.
Give it another year
The gardener says
Give it another year
I will offer it
My full attention,
Perhaps it will even offer
Something more than
Perhaps it is not a fig tree
At all.
