Are poems hard to write for a beginner?

Not if you have an imagination and knowledge about what you want to write about.

No. Not if they're smart enough.

It depends what sort of poetry you want to write. Modern free verse is just a pile of words on top of each other, requiring no special ability, in my opinion.
Real poems, such as those written by Lord Byron, Tennyson and others were magnificent in their structure, with beautiful language organised into lines that rhymed, scanned and made sense.
Start writing and see what you can come up with. Also read poetry books. Even some rap could be classified as poetry, as there is a real skill in composing lines that rhyme, nearly all the time.

No, I learned how to write them in elementary school

Poems are probably the easiest thing to write, they just seem to spill out onto the page, for me. I would suggest for a beginner, to keep it short, and sweet. Kind of like a nursery rhyme. Jack be nimble, Jack be quick. Jack jumped over the candlestick. Keep some kind of rhythm, like a boxer jabbing, and build from there.

Yes. Not so hard if you write free verse. Traditional poems with structure is hard, because of all the devises that are used, like meter, rhyme, metaphor and just to find a theme to write about can be hard.

Some have a natural flair for it, and it comes easily.

If you are not a poet by nature it is very hard.

The Bishop of Sodor and Man
Wrote poetry that didn't scan.
He managed quite fine
Till he reached the last line
And then he found he had too many syllables and it didn't rhyme with anything.

well i sure as hell never figured out how to write any
i figure it's just one of those things you either have a talent for or you don't. or something
then again, a lot of the stuff that passes for poetry these days... i don't think it is
