And the procession chanted something sad with plenty of ohs!
Some of the girls gave little gasps of surprise, others, ohs!
Very little was said, after Emily, interrupted by frequent “ohs!”
A chorus of “ohs,” and “ahs,” and “dear mammas,” went round the table.
Ohs and ahs punctuated the air, women being the same in every land.
There were no false starts, no "ohs" of regret and appeal, no questions of quantity.
The women knew this, and they uttered "ohs" and "ahs" of applause.
Besides, it must be confessed, it was sweet to hear Janet's "Ohs!"
From all over the Opera House you could have heard delighted "Ohs!"
The female population gathers to admire, and the equivalent to our ohs and ahs fills the air.
