O'OPU (Rainbow Garden)

O'opu likes to swim
In the fresh water stream,
It likes to swim all day
At night it likes to dream,

O'opu uses it's fin
To form a suction cup,
To help it climb, climb up rocks,
Moving up, up, up,
Lighten up!
Once O'opu reaches the top,
It hops into the water,
Hops into the water,
Like a "belly-flop!"
