Yes, verbs have moods, not good moods and bad moods though, they're not actually moody, here 'mood' (sometimes 'mode') comes from the Latin for 'manner'. The so called mood of the verb simply expresses the viewpoint of the speaker or writer; their wishes, intents, or assertions about reality.

In English there are three moods:-

The indicative mood is the most common one; it is used to state facts, to deny things, or ask a question.

The imperative mood is used to give commands.

The least used mood, but the one that gives people the most trouble, is the subjunctive mood. The subjunctive mood is usually used to express doubt or show that a situation is hypothetical.
