  1. The word “globe” refers to earth which is shrunk due to extreme weather. But we know that earth does not shrink or change its size. Hence symbolically it means that winter makes all the living thing on earth to shrink. In other words, all living beings become metal-like. The blood does not flow properly into their hearts. They swift movements stop. They are unable to see even during the day as extreme cold dims their eyesight. Thus globe symbolises the living beings on earth.
