    :-: Good Mourning



    We're five little items who stand in a line;
    The first is the fourth, then add ten to a nine
    For the second; the third is the fifth, and the fourth
    Is the eighteenth, and then trek from south back to north
    for the fifth--which is first, and the whole is a day
    full of anger; the last which will soon come your way.

    (Hope this is easier than my Winnie-the-Pooh one--but still challenging enough to be fun!)

    I hope it wasn't on this riddle....

    Seriously, this one's easy (at least compared to the Winnie-the-Pooh one), I promise.

    I tried substituting for letters and got "DSERA", which I am sure means nothing.
    From the title and the last line I feel it must have something to do with death.

    So far...stumped.

    I'm a dope, all right? Sue me.

    Anyway, so BROWNING'S CHILDE has got "D S E R A", what can you glean from that?

    a day full of anger...

    Is it the Dies Irae? Which is what the letters sound like when you say them in order...

    BINGO!!

    The goose goes to Maturins_Daughter, with heaping portions for BROWNING'S CHILDE!

    Sorry this didn't go on for longer, but at least this time the answer was guessed!
