Dam al Ha-Elim = Blood on the Tracks?

Philip Smith writes:

While attending Jewish Day School in South Africa, I can remember reading a Hebrew poem in class with the lyrics "Dam Al HaEylim" which I think translates to "blood on the tracks". It was apparently a fairly well-known poem by a well-known author (Sh'Y Agnon?), in a book of classic Hebrew/Israeli literature - an anthology which had a tree on the front cover.
Does this ring any bells?
