Yes! A verb can be in a mood but the mood of a verb does not tell us how a verb feels. It rather tells us how the person who is acting the verb, feels.
Mood of Verbs
The moods of a verb have completely different names than a person’s mood.
Indicative Verbs are used when we state a fact.
I will bike
Imperative Verbs are used when we tell someone what to do.
Get out of bed
Open the door
Interrogative Verbs are used when we ask a question.
Will I see if I can go out tonight.
Will you help me with carrying this junk?
Conditional Verbs are used when something else has to happen before the action described by the verb can occur.
If you leave food on the table, he might eat it.
He would look nice if he wore something new.
Subjunctive Verbs are used when we describe thoughts or wishes that might not come true.
I wish wasn’t so fat.
I suggest you go upstairs and clean your room.
