Explanation:
swinging rope is what we call "Tarzan rope." We tie a long rope on the branch of a tree that extends over the water, we swing from it, yell like tarzan, and let go when we are in the middle of the creek, and fall into the water. They are a lot of fun. We have a couple on our property and the kids and their friends just love them.(Me too).

But I don´t have a good translation. The only thing that comes to mind is "cuerda de lanzamiento al estilo tarzán."

Maybe someone can come up with a better suggestion.

Best of Luck,

Bye

Cuerdas balanceantes


Explanation:
"... of swinging ropes and tractor-tire tubes,"

Literariamente se está refiriendo a un viejo y rudimentario columpìo hecho con cuerdas que se balancean y de la que cuelga una cámara de tractor que sirve para columpiarse. Estas grandes cámaras negras, en mi infancia, se usaban también para bañarse en el río.

Asi pues, con "swing" la cuerda "canta" y se "balancea" rítmicamente. Al modo "swing" de Count Basie.

Observa el ritmo musical que da el autor con la "s" inicial en "swinging", "singholes", "springs" mezclado con la "s" terminal de "ropes", "cypress", "cutoffs" & "tubes", sin olvidar las tres "t" de "tractor-tire tubes". Musicalidad rítmica de un columpio neumático o del agua que fluye.

Swinging ropes = "cuerdas balanceantes"; las "s" se mantienen y el ritmo se conserva con la palabra "balanceo".

Espero que te valga

Explanation:
Esta es una traducción de diccionario, pero como el texto parece poético, deberás buscar sinónomos que te vayan
