Late October and dark trees
Bare of branch and bark
Mask  an airy golden volume yet:
A leafy brightness in autumn’s  aura.

Gloom of day but the spreading maple’s 
As if seen through trellised panes:
A Russian chandelier in the Amber Room,
Each frond glowing, reflecting  the uncertain light.

The Amber Room  is a part of a Russian  tsarist palace called Tsarskoe Selo  that, in terms of grandeur and excessive opulence, outstrips even Versailles.  Tsarskoe Selo is  in St. Petersburg, Russia.
