William Butler Yeats (June 13, 1865January 28, 1939) was an Irish poet and playwright who lived during the 19th and 20th centuries. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1923.

One of his poems was The Song of the Wandering Aengus. When Jonathan Archer could not get to sleep during his childhood, his mother Sally Archer would often recite the poem to him. He did not learn that it was by Yeats until he was much older. (ENT episode: "Rogue Planet")

Miles O'Brien's mother tried to get him interested in Yeats by the poem No Second Troy. O'Brien later reflected that he had no interest in, or understanding of, the poetry or the history illustrated in it as a child. (DS9 novelization: The Search)
