Hero And Leander

It lies not in our power to love or hate,
For will in us is over-rul'd by fate.
When two are stript long ere the course begin,
We wish that one should lose, the other win;
And one especially do we affect
Of two gold ingots, like in each respect:
The reason no man knows; let it suffice,
What we behold is censur'd by our eyes.
Where both deliberate, the love is slight:
Who ever lov'd, that lov'd not at first sight?
 
Thanks!

[@Alma Barroca] Hey sorry one more thing, the last line needs to be a question according to this analysis, not a sentence, even though a couple of sources have the last line as a sentence.
