I would have to agree with Adrian on this one.. and yes a river can "roar".. his answer seems like it fits.. i couldn't come up with anything that suits it better..

It sounds familiar, but I couldn't say. But a river does move IMO, it makes curves in the landscape.

So, what's wrong with my waterfall?
It couldn't be a river, as a river does not always "roar"... There are quiet rivers!
