conglobe (third-person singular simple present conglobes, present participle conglobing, simple past and past participle conglobed)

  1. (archaic, poetic, intransitive) To conglobate; to collect into a round mass.
    • Milton
      His brooding wings the Spirit of God outspread,
      And vital virtue infused and vital warmth,
      Throughout the fluid mass, but downward purged
      The black, tartareous, cold, infernal, dregs
      Adverse to life: then founded, then conglobed
      Like things to like.
    • Robert Browning
      But what means this? The downy swathes combine,
      Conglobe, the smothery coy-caressing stuff
      Curdles about her!
