Nielsen probably composed the song in 1919 when it was issued in a single-line version. Later that year, he sent a version for piano with text to the publishers Wilhelm Hansen, who published it in 1920.

Single-line = single-stanza or without piano? The version published in 1920 has only one stanza.
