WOTW: Rill

Rill  (noun)  a small stream; a shallow channel cut in the ground by running water

I found this word in It by Stephen King where it was used as a verb, "He could hear running water somewhere close, chuckling over stones and rilling between them."

According to Merriam Webster, in verb form the word means "to flow like a rill."
