Could you climb up here?

An apple at the top of the tree
Not quite ripe but almost there
Could you please pick me?
Could you climb up here?

I don't want someone who settles for less
For rotten apples that are just a mess
Ugly and bruised but easy to reach
Could you climb up here?
Could you pick me?

Just give it a try
Give it some effort

I'll be here
Ripe and ready
to be picked off the apple tree
It won't be as easy as getting an apple off the ground
but could you maybe try?
for me?
