Emily Dickinson - Nature and God -- I neither knew

Nature and God -- I neither knew
Yet Both so well knew me
They startled, like Executors
Of My identity.

Yet Neither told -- that I could learn --
My Secret as secure
As Herschel's private interest
Or Mercury's affair --

The universe possesses the secrecy of man,
Man is peeping into the secrecy of the universe;
If the manís brain is the masterpiece of God,
Does the man have any doubt Who God is?

For a short poem, this is amazingly deep. I think she was admitting that for all we think we know, only nature and God know our inmost secrets and don't reveal them, and like executors, our lives are controlled by them. A deep mystery.
