Li Sao (Falling into Grief) #4:
By 白云立  Bai Yunli
離騷圖 #4 
(The king) speaks openly, then later regrets having done so (lines 45-6)

(02.06 - 02.20 of the Li Sao recording)

The illustration shows Qu Yuan turned away at the king's palace because the king no longer wishes to consult with him. Qu Yuan says this pains him not because of his own desires, but because it shows him that the king is fickle.
