For example, the 1653 edition and later collections include "A Song," which is the first two stanzas of John Donne's "Song. Goe, and catch a falling star," and Thomas Carew's "Secresie Protested." Peter Beal in Index of English Literary Manuscripts accepts the verse canon established by Beaumont's editor Alexander Dyce with the following modifications: "Like a ring without a finger" reassigned to Sir Walter Ralegh; "On the Life of Man" reassigned to Henry King; "On the Tombs in Westminster" reassigned to William Basse.
