Morsul the Dark has been trapped in the Barrow!
So I latched onto “Deck” and looked into ships.

The Alcarondas is a ship with Golden Masts (though I admit I can’t find the other colors)

It’s the ship that anchored at Valar when the last king of Númenor challenged them.

Taking memories if metaphorical could mean the sinking of Númenor.

Deck me out in fiery colours:
Gold and red and yellow too.
Feed me well with times and places;
Your memories I'll take from you.

In contrast to the colours, the first line is pretty much just there to fill space and make an observation about the colours.

I don't think it's giving too much away to say that the answer is a class of people, places, or things, and the colours are three specific examples.

Urwen has just left Hobbiton.
Oh, I think I may have it.


It's dragons.




Deck me out in fiery colours:
Gold and red and yellow too -
Glaurung is gold; Smaug is red
Feed me well with times and places;
Your memories I'll take from you. -
Glaurung, as he did with Nienor
