Refering to the Lied Der Erlkönig by Goethe, the expression "Bleibe ruhig!" appears in the fourth stanza. Shouldn't the Du-form of the verb Bleiben in the imperative be Bleib instead of Bleibe?

Thanks in advance!

The imperative of the verb bleiben for the second person singular is bleib or bleibe. Thus, the expression "Bleibe ruhig!" is correct.
