Li Sao (Falling into Grief) #18:
By 白云立  Bai Yunli
離騷圖 #18 
He looks down (in sadness) on his native place (line 366)

(09.09 - 10.06 of the Li Sao recording; closing harmonics 10.07 - 10.20)

However, at this final moment he looks down from heaven on his native place. His steeds are homesick and refuse to go on, and he himself cannot bear to go on. In a brief coda Qu Yuan decides to return home and drown himself.
