Subject:        Rhetoric Question

I have a question about a figure Shakespeare might have used, although I
can't find an example.

Our students ask if there a term for the rhetorical device in these two
lines from a song by the Eagles?

     You can spend all your time making money;
     You can spend all your love making time.

We know that the lines are called anaphoristic because they share the
same opening phrase, but does the echoing of the word 'time' put them in
any other category? And does anyone know of a place Shakespeare might
have used the same turn?

Cheers,
