I had to choose poetic device examples from a poem and these are the lines I chose. I just wanted them to be checked to make sure I am right!

Alliteration - Sail south from here over the salt-streams

Assonance - Go down to the sea, the home of the gull

    Your example for alliteration is good, but not for assonance. Try again after you read up on assonance in the linked page.
