You add the secret keyring for a single invocation of gpg.

Next time you invoke gpg, the secret keyring has not been added
to your original keyring.

To combine secret keyrings, export one keyring and import it to
your other.

The message means that you didn't tell gpg what to do, and it's
the same message you get when you type:

> gpg

The program is waiting for you to provide it with text to encrypt
or decrypt on stdin.
