Hal·cy·on / ˈHalsēən/
1. Denoting a period of time that was idyllically happy and peaceful; made popular with Shakespeare's use of the term “halcyon days" in Henry VI, Part I, 1592:
This night the siege assuredly I'll raise:
Expect Saint Martin's summer, halcyon days,
Since I have entered into these wars
2. Rich, wealthy, prosperous times
3. According to Greek mythology, Alkyone, the daughter of the god of the winds, became so distraught when she learned that her husband had been killed in a shipwreck that she threw herself into the sea and was changed into a kingfisher. The legend also says that such birds built floating nests on the sea, where they so charmed the wind god that he created a period of unusual calm that lasted until the birds' eggs hatched. This legend prompted people to use halcyon both as a noun naming a genus of kingfisher and as an adjective meaning either "of or relating to the kingfisher or its nesting period" or calm.
