"She Walks in Beauty" by Lord Byron is written in three stanzas, each containing six lines.  The rhyme scheme of each is ababab.  In other words, lines 1,3, and 5 of each stanza rhyme with each other (night, bright and light) and lines 2, 4 and 6 of each stanza rhyme with each other (skies, eyes, denies).

I have provided a link to the text of the poem below for further reference.
