The Golden Apples of the Sun is an anthology of 22 short stories by science fiction author Ray Bradbury, first published in 1953. The title was drawn from the last line of the final stanza of W.B. Yeates poem, "The Song of Wandering Aengus" (1899):
|“||Though I am old with wandering|
Through hollow lands and hilly lands,
I will find out where she has gone
And kiss her lips and take her hands;
And walk among long dappled grass,
And pluck till time and times are done
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun.
— W.B. Yeates, The Wind Among the Reeds
