First, I'll give you some of my favorite sites on which to look up information:

And then there's also a good dictionary, such as http://www.answers.com
Poetry -- From answers.com, this is the best definition, I think:

Alliteration -- repetition of consonant sounds at the beginning of words very close to each other: "rifles rapid rattle" ("r" is the alliteration)
Assonance -- repetition of vowel sounds in successive words: "jumpy monkey sundae"

Assonance is the repetition of VOWEL sounds (a, e, i, o, u); consonance and alliteration involve the repetition of consonants (all the other letters of the alphabet); in alliteration that is the repetition of consonant sounds at the BEGINNING of words.
Here is the best explanation I've found for understanding consonance:
Consonance is the repetition of consonant sounds within words. Consonance is very similar to alliteration, but the distinction between the two lies in the placement of the sounds. If the repeated sound is at the start of the words, it is alliteration. If it is anywhere else, it is consonance. In most cases, consonance refers to the end sound (like “nk” in blank and think
