Analyze the rhyme scheme in these lines from "Sonnet 18."

Which is the correct thyme scheme?

But thy eternal summer shall not fade.

Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,

Nor shall death brag thou wander'st in his shade.

When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st,

So long as men can breathe or eyes can see

So long lives this and this gives life to thee.

    Explanation:

    The first line ends with the word fade. Fade rhymes with the last word of third line, shade. The second line line ends with the word ow'st. Ow'st rhymes with the last word of fourth line, grow'st. The fifth line ends with see. See, rhymes with the last word of sixth line thee. Hence the rhyme scheme in Sonnet 18 follows the pattern ababcc

    a = fade

    b = ow'st

    a = shade

    b = grow'st

    c = see

    c = thee
