In the poem, the poet says that “snowdrop” flower also “pursues her ends”. In addition, the poet uses the word “she” for snowdrop, attributing the qualities of human beings into it. The word “ends” usually means “goal” while “end” means “extreme”.
So, the line can either mean that the snowdrop snows grows to its full in the extreme of winter or it means that snowdrop flower pursues its goal of depicting “doom and death”. This is why the poet compares it to the stars of winter which do not guide a person but kill him.
