Li Sao (Falling into Grief) #5:
By 白云立  Bai Yunli
離騷圖 #5 
(Qu Yuan) sighs long then wipes away his tears (line 77)

(02.21 - 02.39 of the Li Sao recording)

Qu Yuan, having left official life, again nurtures himself. After a final sigh he wipes away his tears. It may be that he has decided to join the shamans who do healing and divination.
