Definitions will spawn in a new window (Wordnet):

Crabapple
aubergine

You fell for a crabapple tree in the city.
 1
Not a sheltered evergreen in the forest,
 2
Or a tattered elm swaying alone on a country road.
 3
 
The fruit was bitter but its flowers were bright.
 4
So you climbed farther into its grip
 5
To combine secrets.
 6
 
And only when you fell like a ripe apple from its arms,
 7
Did the city stop to see.
