I love to look at and admire the beauty of bare and leafless trees.
When trees are bare the shapes of their trunks and branches are visible. And the shapes of many trees are incredibly beautiful.
And many bare trees are poetic, as well.
When trees are in full leaf their beautifully-shaped branches are covered up.
Of course, many people love the beauty of trees with leaves because they enjoy the greenery and the many variations of color of leaves. Some trees look very lush and soft when dressed in their cloaks of leaves.
Here is a drawing of one of my many leafless trees:
