I see no other alliteration in the poem.
Alliteration is a repetition of a particular sound in a first syllable of a series of words. In the poem "To My Dear and Loving Husband" there are some examples of a repetition of sound.
"Then while we live in love let' so persevere"

"I prize thy love more than whole mines of gold"
More and mines repeat the/m/ sound.
