Assonance is "stem, end, and blossom end" with the repetition of the short "e" vowel sound.

Alliteration is "one can see what will trouble" with the repetition of the "w" sound beginning the words.

Personification is "The woodchuck could say whether it's like his Long sleep" with giving an animal human characteristics of talking/speaking.

And consonance is "But I was well Upon my way to sleep before it fell, And I could tell" because "well, fell and tell" all end in the same consonant sound.
