Sarcasm, I don't think so.

She just doesn't feel she is entitled or justified to face the challenge of
the riddle of death yet. Maybe she is also a little sorry she has to die so
young. She is not mature and ready yet. She loves nature, like Emily did,
and she thinks even the bee would question her facing that riddle so soon.
She considers nature to be mature and worthy. So, I don't think she is
mocking her place, she is just humble.

Apart from that, there is a clear religious tone in the poem, the riddle of
death being a possible higher level of existence. So, in this poem
Emily/"the I person" is also sort of exited about the chance that there
might be something after life, after all.

It was the first poem I read by her and I was immediately totally
breathtaken by the rhymes and humility and sweetness. I just love this
poem. Almost made me believe :-)

Wow. This poem sounds like sarcasm to me.
She is mocking her place in the world, probably thinking it is NOT very
insignificant.
