General solution of ODE in parametric form

I'm having trouble with obtaining parametric form of general solution solution of given ODE ($A,\; B,\; C$ are constants ):

$A y''(t)+B y(t) y'(t)+ Cy(t)=0 $

This is autonomous differential equation which can be converted to 1st order equation using $y'(t)=\omega (y)$, which results in Abel equation of the second kind:

$A\omega(y)\omega'(y)+B y \omega(y)+ Cy^3=0$

I can obtain solution of this ODE using maple but result isn't in parametric form (t is explicite),and parametric form should look like this:

$y=(-2A/B z)^{1/2}$ where $z=\eta Exp(- \int\frac{\sigma d\sigma}{\sigma^2-\sigma-D})$ with $D=-2AC/B^2$ and $\eta$ is constant, $y'=\sigma z$


$y''=-B/A\frac{\sigma+D}{\sigma}y y'$.

This equation comes from (eq 81 with $y(t)=H(t)$ and solution: 83-85).

Here's my question: how to solve/obtain parametric form of this equation (or Abel one)? I've only found this paper but Abel equations in it are different than this given above
