Italian term or phrase: dirollo
Poem written in 1722:

Se l’acque mie diffondo
in tempo sì giocondo
né serbo più misura,
quantunque per natura
di quelle io sia scarsa;
Dirollo a gloria mia,
che con intreccio raro
l’onde loro in me versano
l’Arbia, l’Isara e l’Arno.

And if you want to help out with the five line above "dirollo", feel free.

I promise that next week I'll go out any buy Devoto Oli.

I mean, I\'ll think about the five lines, but dirollo = lo dirò is OK.

if I (the river\'s speaking) cause my water to flow at such a lively pace, I can\'t keep much of it, even though by nature it (=the water) is scanty... well, more or less, this old language doesn\'t make much sense to me

Thanks -- and you didn't misunderstand my question. Dirollo was the question, but an interpretation of the five foregoing lines was certainly most welcome. I appreciate all your help!
