The subject of the poem "Annabel Lee," by Edgar Allan Poe is the death of the narrator's love, Annabel Lee. The narrator tells us about how the two of them were childhood sweethearts who loved each other and (presumably) got married. He then tells how she died and how devastated he continues to be by her loss.
I would say that the tone and mood of the poem are somber. His attitude toward Annabel Lee and her death is clearly a sad one. He continues to miss her and sleep in her tomb. I don't think you could say that that is anything but sad and somber.
